    Evolution 58:203-6. 2004
    ..To our knowledge, this experiment provides the first evidence of host quantitative genetics being influenced by parasitism, and illustrates the potential for parasitism to constrain an evolutionary response to selection...

    A Charmantier
    Centre d Ecologie Fonctionnelle Evolutive, CNRS, Montpellier Cedex, France
    J Evol Biol 17:732-43. 2004

    Department of Zoology, Edward Grey Institute, University of Oxford, Oxford OX1 3PS, UK

    Mol Ecol 14:2839-50. 2005
    ..Typical rates of extra-pair paternities in birds (around 20% of offspring) should result in an underestimation of heritability of less than 15% when estimated over a minimum of 100 broods...

    Anne Charmantier
    Edward Grey Institute, Department of Zoology, University of Oxford, South Parks Road, Oxford, UK
