Relationship between body condition as fitness proxy and individual MHC class I diversity. Intermediate numbers of individual MHC diversity are associated with higher curved carapace length (CCL) - a proxy of reproductive success. (N = 40, CCL = −0.194 (#alleles)2 + 0.091#alleles-0.0413, R2 = 0.157).
