Abstract [en]

Capsule The Great Tit Parus major displays a black melanin breast patch stripe (black tie or black belly stripe) which shows great variation and its size correlates with male breeding success, survival and dominance. We investigated for associations between the melanocortin-1 receptor (MC1R) polymorphism, which has an important function in melanin colouration, and the size of the black belly stripe but were unable to detect any polymorphism in this gene. Variation in the size of the melanin-based black belly stripe may therefore be regulated through genetic variation at other genes or via modification of the gene expression inside the melanocortin system and melanogenesis.
