Data from: Evaluating the existence and benefit of major histocompatibility complex-based mate choice in an isolated owl population

Akira Sawada, Haruko Ando & Masaoki Takagi
How mate preferences evolve in the first place has been a major conundrum for sexual selection. Some hypotheses explaining this assume fitness benefit derived from subsequent generations. Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC)-based mate choice is a representative example of the mate choice that is associated with such trans-generational mechanisms. To provide evidences for fitness benefit of MHC-based mate choice, previous studies assessed the association between own MHC genotype and own fitness components. However, the association between...
