Physiological stress has the potential to influence animal population persistence. The endangered Asian elephant Elephas maximus is involved in intense conflict with humans in many parts of its range, which is likely to lead to stress for individuals and groups, and population-level impacts. Thus, it is important to understand how stress levels in them are influenced by socio-ecological factors when they are not directly exposed to human-induced threats and to use this understanding to improve conservation and management strategies. The study was designed to provide baseline information on the link between socio-ecological factors and stress levels of undisturbed populations of elephants. The main aim of this study was to determine the influence of herd size, season, the number of calves and adult females present in a herd, their lactational status and body condition on the adrenocortical activity of free-ranging adult female Asian elephants living in protected forests without any direct exposure to human-induced threats, by measuring their faecal glucocorticoid metabolite fGCM levels.
