    Science 318:812-4. 2007
    ..These results mean that animals, like plants, can evolve two conceptually different types of defense, a finding that has important implications for the understanding of the epidemiology and evolution of infectious diseases...

    Department of Animal Ecology, Lund University, 223 62 Lund, Sweden
    Oecologia 145:496-503. 2005
    ..A review of published studies of sex differences in environmental sensitivity in sexually size-dimorphic altricial birds suggests that the smaller sex is more sensitive than the larger sex in species with large brood size and vice versa...
  6. pmc Basal metabolic rate and the evolution of the adaptive immune system

    Department of Animal Ecology, Lund University, Ecology Building, S 223 62 Lund, Sweden
    Proc Biol Sci 269:817-21. 2002
    ..This suggests that the evolution of the adaptive immune system has not been constrained by energetic costs. Rather, it should have been favoured by the energy savings associated with a combination of innate and adaptive immune defence...
