Using rigorous methods, we found no evidence that men find body odours of HLA-dissimilar women more attractive than odours of HLAsimilar women. In his comment, Wedekind [2] claims that our conclusions were premature, because he found (using our data) a stronger negative relationship between pleasantness and intensity for HLA-dissimilar odours than for similar ones. Although this is an interesting finding, it cannot be considered as a support for HLA-related mate preferences.....</dcterms:abstract> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Knoch, Daria</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Wirthmüller, Urs</dc:creator> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2018-06-25T09:13:38Z</dc:date> <dcterms:issued>2018-05-16</dcterms:issued> <dc:contributor>Lobmaier, Janek S.</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/46"/> <dc:creator>Lobmaier, Janek S.</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/46"/> <dc:creator>Probst, Fabian</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/42677"/> <dc:contributor>Fischbacher, Urs</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:title>Accumulating evidence suggests that men do not find body odours of human leucocyte antigen-dissimilar women more attractive</dcterms:title> <dc:creator>Fischbacher, Urs</dc:creator> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:contributor>Wirthmüller, Urs</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2018-06-25T09:13:38Z</dcterms:available> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
