    Frode Fossøy
    Department of Biology, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, NTNU, Trondheim, Norway
    PLoS ONE 7:e36884. 2012
    ..We conclude that the generalist brood-parasitic common cuckoo show no significant sex-ratio bias in relation to host race and discuss this finding in light of gene flow and host adaptations...

    F Fossøy
    National Centre for Biosystematics, Natural History Museum, University of Oslo, Oslo, Norway
    J Evol Biol 22:1954-60. 2009
    ..Our results indicate that both the random assortment of parental chromosomes during meiosis as well as inbreeding can drive heterozygosity-fitness correlations...

    Anton Antonov
    Department of Biology, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim, Norway
    PLoS ONE 7:e31704. 2012
    ..As interclutch variation increases, parasites able to choose hosts matching best their own egg phenotype should be selected, but this requires that parasites know their own egg phenotype and select host nests correspondingly...

    Oddmund Kleven
    National Centre for Biosystematics, Natural History Museum, University of Oslo, Oslo, Norway
