Rotifer adaptation to the unpredictability of the growing season

The view arising is that these rotifers adaptively respond to the unpredictability in their localities, and environmental features and diapause-related traits are associated to suites of specific genes, although the molecular mechanisms linking these genes with life history are still unknown.

Variation in the life cycle of monogonont rotifers: Commitment to sex and emergence from diapause

There is no regular pattern where: (1) fertilised resting eggs hatch to start the growing season; (2) populations develop via female parthenogenesis during favourable conditions; and then (3) bisexual reproduction with resting‐egg production occurs during later, unfavourable conditions.

Evolutionary Dynamics of ‘the’ Bdelloid and Monogonont Rotifer Life-history Patterns

The asexual life history was found to maintain higher levels of allelic diversity than any pattern including sexual reproduction, and this intriguing finding is amplified as the number of loci undergoing selection is increased.

Metabolic Dormancy in Aquatic Invertebrates

One major approach used by invertebrates for coping with extreme environmental conditions is to enter states of metabolic and developmental dormancy, and the distribution of dormancy is broadly scattered phylogenetically.
