Populations containing undetectable levels of tocopherol (< 6.78–20.83 ng per g dry weight rotifer) exhibited normal sexual reproduction, indicating that this species and probably also A. brightwelli and A. sieboldi, do not require tocopherol for male fertility. Thus, the hypothesis that tocopherol is an adaptive signal for mictic-female production in these latter two species by virtue of its role in male fertility is no longer tenable. Dietary tocopherol had irregular and only slight… Expand
