Likelihood ratio tests comparing GLMMs and GLMs with genetic markers (fixed factors) and/or stallion identity (“ID”, random factor) and reference models (indicated in italics) to test the effects of (A) number of shared MHC antigens (“MHC”, range 0 to 3), and (B) direct comparison of effects of number of shared MHC antigens and pairwise relatedness r in the subsample of 126 mares that allow for such a test. Significant p-values are emphasized in bold.
