Over- or under-activation of the stress systems' responses can impact an animal's health, survival and reproductive success. While physiological stress responses and their influence on behaviour and performance are well understood at the individual level, it remains largely unknown whether-and how-stressed individuals can affect the stress systems of other group members, and consequently their collective behaviour. Stressed individuals could directly signal the presence of a stressor (e.g. via an alarm call or pheromones), or an acute or chronic activation of the stress systems could be perceived by others (as an indirect cue) and spread via social contagion. Such social transmission of stress responses could then amplify the effects of stressors by impacting social interactions, social dynamics and the collective performance of groups. As the neuroendocrine pathways of the stress response are highly conserved among vertebrates, transmission of physiological stress states could be more widespread among non-human animals than previously thought. We therefore suggest that identifying the extent to which stress transmission modulates animal collectives represents an important research avenue.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Brandl, Hanja B.</dc:contributor> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2022-05-16T08:26:27Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Farine, Damien R.</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Farine, Damien R.</dc:creator> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2022-05-16T08:26:27Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Pruessner, Jens C.</dc:creator> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Pruessner, Jens C.</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:issued>2022-05-11</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Brandl, Hanja B.</dc:creator> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
