dc.description.abstract [EN] The main aim of this work was to know the possible potential of certain metabolites as biomarkers of the European wild rabbit to deepen the biological knowledge of this species and complement specific conservation programs. The main finding of our paper is that, regardless of the weight of the animals and their reproductive state, females show greater feed intake capacity than males, and their metabolism is affected. Furthermore, different reproductive stages are related to different metabolic phenotypes, metabolic behaviors, and metabolic profiles. There are indications of better optimization of resources by females, and evidence of the importance of some metabolites in the reproductive fitness of the species. European wild rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) has been defined as a keystone species in the Mediterranean ecosystem. Rabbits have been classed as "endangered" by the IUCN within their native range. In this sense, animal nutrition may play a fundamental and limiting role in the conservation of wild species. The overarching goal of ecological nutrition is to unravel the extensive web of nutritional links that direct animals in their interactions with their ecological environments. The main aim of this work was to evaluate the effect of different feed intake, geographic location, animal sex, and reproductive stage on glucose, non-esterified fatty acids (NEFA), and plasmatic urea nitrogen (PUN), albumin, glutamate, and total protein metabolites. Additionally, we examined the potential of these metabolites as biomarkers. Full stomach contents and blood samples were collected from European wild rabbits (n = 89) for the analysis of the metabolites described above. Our work shows that the levels of these metabolites are affected by the sex of the animals, as well as by their reproductive stage (glucose, NEFA and albumin). There were signs of better optimisation of resources by females than by other groups of animals. These data may be interesting in the study of nutritional components that could be affecting physiological state of this species. es_ES
