Abstract : Weight increase rate profiles were developed for 13 males and 8 female Macaca mulatta based on weights recorded within the stereotaxic acceptability weight range of 2.5 to 4.5 kilograms. It was concluded that adolescent female rhesus have a greater weight increase rate than male rhesus with more extreme weights occurring in the individual female samples. (Author)
