Spatially variable coevolution between a haemosporidian parasite and the MHC of a widely distributed passerine

Ecology and Evolution

Abstract

The environment shapes host-parasite interactions, but how environmental variation affects the diversity and composition of parasite-defense genes of hosts is unresolved. In vertebrates, the highly variable major histocompatibility complex (MHC) gene family plays an essential role in th...read more
