Efforts to deduce the evolutionary significance of sexual reproduction from the taxonomic and ecological distributions of asexuals rely on the presumption that reversions of asexual taxa to sexual reproduction are rare. There is growing evidence, however, that reversions may be likely as long as asexuals are diploid, and some sexual populations persist. However, few systems have been studied in sufficient detail to provide insight into the nature of interactions between the sexual and asexual… CONTINUE READING
