    Plasma lipid levels are determined by the interplay of environmental and genetic factors. Occasionally environmental factors may alter lipid levels significantly, resulting in secondary dyslipidaemia. The lipid phenotype in secondary dyslipidaemia is very variable (e.g. predominant hypercholesterolaemia, hypertriglyceridaemia or changes...

    The social correlates of self-directed behaviour and faecal glucocorticoid levels among adult male olive baboons (<em>Papio hamadryas anubis</em>) in Gashaka-Gumti National Park, Nigeria

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    Sociality confers many benefits to gregarious animals, but group-living does not come without associated costs. Social living can cause anxiety, which if prolonged can lead to stress. We investigate correlates of anxiety and stress among wild adult male olive baboons...
