MHC-dependent survival in a wild population: evidence for hidden genetic benefits gained through extra-pair fertilizations

Brouwer, Lyanne; Barr, Iain; van de Pol, Martijn; Burke, Terry; Komdeur, Jan; Richardson, David S.

Description

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
