Alternative morphs and plasticity of vulval development in a rhabditid nematode species

Abstract

The nematode species Rhabditis sp. SB347 (Family Rhabditidae) in standard culture conditions displays two developmental morphs with distinct modes of sexual reproduction: (1) females and males that develop through four feeding juvenile (“larval”) stages; (2) self-fertile protandric hermaphrodites that develop through an obligatory non-feeding third juvenile… (More)
