Accelerated Diversification of Nonhuman Primate Malarias in Southeast Asia: Adaptive Radiation or Geographic Speciation?
Although parasitic organisms are found worldwide, the relative importance of host specificity and geographic isolation for parasite speciation has been explored in only a few systems. Here, we studyExpand

Ape Conservation Physiology: Fecal Glucocorticoid Responses in Wild Pongo pygmaeus morio following Human Visitation
Nature-based tourism can generate important revenue to support conservation of biodiversity. However, constant exposure to tourists and subsequent chronic activation of stress responses can produceExpand

Testosterone and Immune Function in Primates: A Brief Summary with Methodological Considerations
The endocrine system serves as a mediator by which the body integrates environmental cues to organize physiological alterations, including changes in immunocompetence. Hormones are central mechanismsExpand

DHEA Modulates Immune Function: A Review of Evidence.
DHEA and DHEA-S have numerous associations with multiple aspects of immune function and are often characterized as beneficial and supportive of immunocompetence. However, closer inspection of theseExpand

Androgens and innate immunity in rehabilitated semi‐captive orangutans (Pongo pygmaeus morio) from Malaysian Borneo
Despite the implications for the development of life‐history traits, endocrine–immune trade‐offs in apes are not well studied. This is due, in part, to difficulty in sampling wild primates, and lackExpand

Adrenal maturation, nutritional status, and mucosal immunity in Bolivian youth
Humans—and several other apes—exhibit a unique pattern of post‐natal adrenal maturation; however, the causes and consequences of variation in adrenal development are not well understood. In thisExpand

Immunity, hormones, and life history trade-offs
Immunity is an integral part of organismal life histories because it is crucial for maximizing evolutionary fitness, and because it is energetically expensive to develop, maintain, and activate. ThisExpand

The role of dehydroepiandrosterone on functional innate immune responses to acute stress
The androgen dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) responds to stress activation, exhibits anti-glucocorticoid properties, and modulates immunity in diverse ways, yet little is known of its role in acuteExpand
