Figure 1

The relationship between the change in cortisol (µg/dL) and both perceived aesthetics and riparian area with best fit lines and standard error (n = 55). (A) Cortisol significantly increased after recreating in low aesthetically perceived landscapes. (B) Cortisol significantly decreased after recreating in more riparian areas. Both figures are plotted against the residual change in cortisol when controlling for either aesthetic PC1 score or riparian area.
