Effects of asexual reproduction on the neighborhood area of cyclical parthenogens

  title={Effects of asexual reproduction on the neighborhood area of cyclical parthenogens},
  author={Charles E. King and Paul A. Murtaugh},
The habitat occupied by a subpopulation and withinwhich there is random mating is known as its‘neighborhood area’. Neighborhood area is dependenton dispersal rates and organisms with low rates ofdispersal are expected to have small neighborhoodareas. In the absence of evolutionary forces,neighborhood areas under sexual reproduction will beconstant in size as long as dispersal patterns do notchange. This scenario differs when reproduction is bycyclical parthenogenesis since recombination… CONTINUE READING
