Genetic Variation in Reproductive Investment Across an Ephemerality Gradient in Daphnia pulex

Molecular biology and evolution, Vol. 39, Issue 6, 2022

PMID: 35642301

Species across the tree of life can switch between asexual and sexual reproduction. In facultatively sexual species, the ability to switch between reproductive modes is often environmentally dependent and subject to local adaptation. However, the ecological and evolutionary factors that influence the maintenance and turnover of polymorphism associated with facultative sex remain unclear. We studied the ecological and evolutionary dynamics of reproductive investment in the facultatively sexual model species, Daphnia pulex.
