Several hypotheses predict that the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) drives mating preference in females. Olfactory, color or morphological traits are often found as reliable signals of the MHC profile, but the role of avian song mediating MHC-based female choice remains largely unexplored. We investigated the relationship between several MHC and acoustic features in the collared flycatcher (Ficedula albicollis) a European passerine with complex songs. We screened a fragment of the class IIB 2nd exon of...
