Several hypotheses were proposed to account for geographic parthenogenesis that is the disjointed distribution of a species’ sexual and asexual forms. In the areas affected by glaciations the parthenogenetic forms would have had ecological success and hybridization and polyploidy would have been the driving forces in their success. Limnocythere inopinata is well-represented in Quaternary non-marine sequences and is useful for studying the evolution of geographic parthenogenesis. We analysed the… CONTINUE READING
