    PLoS ONE 8:e69135. 2013
    ..Thus, our results indicate that the Grey partridge MHCIIB is comparable to most other galliforms in terms of copy number and population polymorphism. ..

    Tomas Albrecht
    Institute of Vertebrate Biology, vvi, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, Květná 8, Brno 603 65, Czech Republic
    Proc Biol Sci 280:20122434. 2013
    ..Although tropical species had lower sperm competition risk than temperate zone species for overlapping clutch sizes, the idea of a generally reduced risk of sperm competition in tropical birds was not supported by our analysis...

    Jana Albrechtova
    Research Facility Studenec, Institute of Vertebrate Biology, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, Brno, Czech Republic Department of Zoology, Faculty of Science, Charles University in Prague, Prague, Czech Republic
    PLoS ONE 9:e115669. 2014
    ..Nevertheless, we suggest that more strains should be used in future experiments to account for natural variation and to avoid confounding results due to reduced variability and/or founder effect in the individual strains. ..
