Supplemental Figure 1A

Supplemental Figure 1. Funnel plot of all glucocorticoid (GC) repeatability estimates and sample sizes for A) every study included in the meta-analysis and B) every study with a sample size less than 150. Repeatability of initial GCs are represented with open circles, response GCs with open triangles, and integrated GCs with closed squares. In this study, we defined initial measures as those representing GCs in circulation within a time period expected not to reflect the acute stress of capture, response for elevated GC titers following an acute capture stress, and integrated for GC titers that represent hormone secretion over a relatively long period of time (e.g., GC concentrations in feces, feathers, and saliva). No substantial asymmetry was found, suggesting the data are not strongly biased.
