Immunity in a variable world

Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London. Series B, Biological Sciences

Oct 18, 2008

Brian P Lazzaro, T J Little

Abstract

Immune function is likely to be a critical determinant of an organism's fitness, yet most natural animal and plant populations exhibit tremendous genetic variation for immune traits. Accumulating evidence suggests that environmental heterogeneity may retard the long-term efficiency of n...read more
