    ..Hybrids with local MHC genotype gained more body weight and thus higher fitness than those with foreign MHC in either habitat, suggesting the evolutionary significance of locally adapted MHC genotypes...

    Victor A Stiebens
    Department of Evolutionary Ecology of Marine Fishes, GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research, Kiel 24105, Germany
    Proc Biol Sci 280:20130305. 2013
    ..Contrary to expectation, we propose that philopatry conserves a high adaptive potential at the margins of a distribution, while asymmetric gene flow maintains genetic connectivity with the rest of the population...

    Christophe Eizaguirre
    Leibniz Institute for Marine Sciences, Department of Evolutionary Ecology of Marine Fishes, Duesternbrooker Weg 20, 24105 Kiel, Germany
    Nat Commun 3:621. 2012
    ..This result demonstrates experimentally that varying parasite selection causes rapid adaptive evolutionary changes, thus facilitating the maintenance of major histocompatibility complex polymorphism...
