Ecological immunology: life history trade-offs and immune defense in birds


Ecological immunology: life history trade-offs and immune defense in birds



Behavioral Ecology. Jan-Feb; 111: 19-26



DOI: 10.1093/beheco/11.1.19

There has been considerable recent interest in the effects of life-history decisions on immunocompetence in birds. If immunocompetence is limited by available resources, then trade-offs between investment in life-history components and investment in immunocompetence could be important in determining optimal life-history traits.
