Description

Title:Dynamics of Condition Parameters and Organ Measurements in Pheasants
Author(s):Anderson, William L.
Subject(s):Pheasants
Abstract:ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS are recognized as the primary forces dictating the distribution, abundance, and physical condition of pheasants (Phasianus colchicus) and all other game species. These forces, whether beneficial or detrimental, manifest themselves within the physiological mechanisms carrying on the life processes of individuals constituting animal populations. Thus, it might be said that the physiological status of an animal is the expression of all of the environmental factors acting on the animal. This study elucidates changes in selected physiological parameters of wild pheasants in Illinois in relation to stresses that occur during the life cycle of this game bird.
