This study investigates chronic stress in amphibia by quantification of corticosterone and other glucocorticoids using UPLC-MS/MS in alpine newt (Ichthyosaura alpestris) and fire salamander (Salamandra Salamandra). The results will serve in a larger framework in which the interplay between glucocorticoids and fungi in both species is studied.
