Total and differential white blood cell (WBC) counts vary across different age-sex groups. a Total WBC counts, b neutrophil to lymphocyte (N:L) ratio and c the proportion of each cell type are presented for each age-sex group (Juveniles: light gray; Breeding: hatched fill; 1+ year: dark gray). In a and b, data are log-transformed and expressed as mean ± SEM. In c, data are expressed as mean ± SEM. Numbers indicate the number of individuals examined (n). Asterisks (*) indicate a statistically significant difference between males and females (P < 0.05). # indicate a statistically significant difference between 1+ year males and breeding males (P < 0.05). Φ indicate a statistically significant difference compared to juveniles (P < 0.05)
