Juvenile cell-mediated immune response is negatively correlated with subsequent adult ornament size in quail

Abstract:

Studies of the relationship between sexual traits and immune function have been at the forefront of sexual selection during the last decade. Whereas evidence is accumulating that there is a trade-off between sexual ornamentation and immunocompetence, the reasons for this trade-off are still unknown. Importantly, most studies have addressed this issue only at the adult stage, when sexual ornamentation and immune function may be fully developed. We show here that juvenile cell-mediated immune r...
