Long-term Biobehavioral Effects of Maternal Separation in the Rat: Consistent or Confusing?
Evaluating typical effects of maternal separation in the laboratory rat by categorizing different experimental procedures focuses in particular on longterm behavioral effects, although a brief summary of neuroendocrine effects is also provided.

The linear programming approach identifies the realizable niche space within which a species can maintain coherent groups that are larger than the minimum viable group size (or density) and allows us to understand better why a given taxon can survive in some habitats but not others.

Fission–fusion social systems as a strategy for coping with ecological constraints: a primate case
A linear programming approach is used to build a time budget model that predicts the upper bound on group size in order to test the hypothesis that fission–fusion social systems are the outcome of time constraints and suggests that the costs of travel are limiting for chimpanzees.
