Data from: Selection for brain size impairs innate, but not adaptive immune responses

Alexander Kotrschal, Niclas Kolm & Dustin J. Penn
The brain and the immune system are both energetically demanding organs, and when natural selection favors increased investment into one, then the size or performance of the other should be reduced. While comparative analyses have attempted to test this potential evolutionary trade-off, the results remain inconclusive. To test this hypothesis, we compared the tissue graft rejection (an assay for measuring innate and acquired immune responses) in guppies (Poecilia reticulata) artificially selected for large and small...
