MHC-dependent survival in a wild population: evidence for hidden genetic benefits gained through extra-pair fertilizations
Females should prefer to be fertilized by males that increase the genetic quality of their offspring. In vertebrates, genes of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) play a key role in the acquired immune response and have been shown to affect mating
