Androdioecy, where males co-occur with hermaphrodites, is a rare sexual system in plants and animals. It has a scattered phylogenetic distribution, but it is common and has persisted for long periods of evolutionary time in branchiopod crustaceans. An earlier model of the maintenance of males with hermaphrodites in this group, by Otto et al. (1993), considered the importance of male-hermaphrodite encounter rates, sperm limitation, male versus hermaphrodite viability and inbreeding depression… CONTINUE READING
