Data from: A link between heritable parasite resistance and mate choice in dung beetles

Bruno A. Buzatto, Janne S. Kotiaho, Larissa A. F. Assis & Leigh W. Simmons
Parasites play a central role in the adaptiveness of sexual reproduction. Sexual selection theory suggests a role for parasite resistance in the context of mate choice, but the evidence is mixed. The parasite-mediated sexual selection (PMSS) hypothesis derives a number of predictions, among which that resistance to parasites is heritable, and that female choice favours parasite resistance genes in males. Here we tested the PMSS hypothesis using the dung beetle Onthophagus taurus, a species that...
