Data from: Glucocorticoid levels predict subsequent social tactic in females of a facultatively social mammal

Davina Hill, Neville Pillay & Carsten Schradin
Facultatively social species, in which individuals can switch between group- and solitary-living tactics, offer an opportunity to shed light on proximate mechanisms underlying alternative life histories. Promising hormonal mediators of social tactic include glucocorticoids, which control energy allocation and are negatively related to body condition, and testosterone which regulates numerous social behaviours. Here, we investigated hormonal profiles associated with social tactic in eight generations of free-living female striped mice (Rhabdomys pumilio). Females are group living...
