Most daphnid species reproduce parthenogenetically as well as sexually, resulting in the production of diploid progenies in both cases. In natural populations, parthenogenesis is the common mode of reproduction, and parthenogenetic offspring are all female. However, in response to certain environmental conditions, such as crowding or seasonal change, male offspring are also produced parthenogenetically, and sexual reproduction occurs (Hebert, 1978). Although they switch between parthenogenesis… Expand
