    to stress among human children, but to my knowledge there have been no studies of such a relationship in nonhumans. Here, I investigate the responses of these analytes to non-stressful and stressful events in a cohort of free-ranging juvenile rhesus macaques (Macaca mulatta) on Cayo Santiago, Puerto Rico. Behavioral data collected on maternal rejection and abuse during each juvenile’s first three months of life was used to determine individual ELA categories. Saliva samples were collected from juveniles
