  1. ncbi request reprint Reproductive development according to elevation in a seasonally breeding male songbird
    Nicole Perfito
    Department of Zoology, University of Washington, Seattle, WA 98195, USA
    Oecologia 140:201-10. 2004
    ..Therefore, we suggest that an integrated response to cues characteristic of location and elevation account for differences in patterns measured in the field...
  2. ncbi request reprint Seasonal gonadal recrudescence in song sparrows: response to temperature cues
    Nicole Perfito
    University of Washington, Department of Zoology, Seattle, WA 98195, USA
    Gen Comp Endocrinol 143:121-8. 2005
    ..Furthermore, our data suggest that individuals within the same species may rely on different proximate cues for reproductive timing depending on the specific habitat in which they live...
  3. ncbi request reprint Tonic activation of brain GnRH immunoreactivity despite reduction of peripheral reproductive parameters in opportunistically breeding zebra finches
    Nicole Perfito
    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ 08544 1003, USA
    Brain Behav Evol 67:123-34. 2006
    ..GnRH-ir cells in the hypothalamus appear to remain active and able to respond to subsequent stimulation...
  4. ncbi request reprint Latitudinal variation in plasma testosterone levels in birds of the genus Zonotrichia
    Ignacio T Moore
    Department of Zoology, Box 351800, University of Washington, Seattle, WA 98195, USA
    Gen Comp Endocrinol 129:13-9. 2002
    ..These data suggest that latitudinal clines in plasma testosterone levels in Zonotrichia do not follow previously described patterns and that tropical birds can have levels of testosterone similar to northern latitude species...
  5. doi request reprint Cue hierarchies and testicular development: is food a more potent stimulus than day length in an opportunistic breeder (Taeniopygia g. guttata)?
    Nicole Perfito
    Department of Integrative Biology and Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute, University of California, Berkeley, CA, USA
    Horm Behav 53:567-72. 2008
    ..These data lend support to the proposition that photoperiod acts as a supplementary cue or permissive factor in this system, and thus represents the possibility of a reversal in the hierarchy of cue sensitivity...
