Data from: Social context affects thermoregulation but not activity level during avian immune response

Grace J. Vaziri, Manju M. Johny, Petrutza C. Caragea & James S. Adelman
Determining how an animal’s social context alters its immune responses will help us understand how pathogens impact individual health and spread within groups. Several studies have shown that group-housed animals can suppress components of the acute phase immune response, specifically sickness behaviors like lethargy. However, we do not know whether individuals alter sickness behaviors or other components of the acute phase response, including thermoregulation, in response to the infection status of other group members. We...
