Abstract

•Infection by parasites can reduce individual fitness.•Host responses to infection during mate choice are intended to avoid infection.•We highlight the main limitations in current knowledge on infection avoidance.•We summarize key factors that should affect infection avoidance in mate choice.•The molecular mechanisms at the basis of infection avoidance need to be examined.
