Ancient asexuals directly contradict the evolutionary theories that explain why organisms should evolve a sexual life history1,2. The mutualistic, arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi are thought to have been asexual for approximately 400 million years3,4. In the absence of sex, highly divergent descendants of formerly allelic nucleotide sequences are thought to evolve in a genome2. In mycorrhizal fungi, where individual offspring receive hundreds of nuclei from the parent, it has been hypothesized… CONTINUE READING
