There has been much recent interest in the role for genetic conflicts to drive the evolution of genetic systems. Here we consider the evolution of hermaphroditism in the scale insect tribe Iceryini and the suggestion that this has been driven by conflict between a female and an infectious male tissue derived from her father. We perform an inclusive-fitness analysis to show that, owing to genetic relatedness between father and daughter, there is scope for collaboration as well as conflict over… Expand
Sex, males, and hermaphrodites in the scale insect Icerya purchasi
TLDR
In a large population-genetic analysis, it is shown for the first time that although self-fertilization appears to be the primary mode of reproduction, rare outbreeding events between males and hermaphrodites do occur, and androdioecy is confirmed as the mating system of I. purchasi. Expand
Diversity of Modes of Reproduction and Sex Determination Systems in Invertebrates, and the Putative Contribution of Genetic Conflict
About eight million animal species are estimated to live on Earth, and all except those belonging to one subphylum are invertebrates. Invertebrates are incredibly diverse in their morphologies, lifeExpand
Sexual antagonism in haplodiploids
TLDR
A series of evolutionary-genetic models of sexual antagonism for haplodiploids are developed, incorporating details of their molecular biology and social ecology, and it is found that PGE promotes female-beneficial alleles more than arrhenotoky. Expand
Sex, males, and hermaphrodites in the scale insect Icerya purchasi.
TLDR
It is shown for the first time that, although self-fertilization appears to be the primary mode of reproduction, rare outbreeding events between do occur in natural populations, supporting the hypothesis that hermaphrodites mate with males and androdioecy is the mating system of I. purchasi. Expand
A general ploidy model for the evolution of helping in viscous populations.
TLDR
A model of general ploidy is developed that recovers these three scenarios as special cases and allows examination of scenarios that have not been considered previously, and clarifies the importance of the implicit assumption of monandry in previous models and reveals that the cancellation result obtains in some models of ploids but not in others. Expand
Sexual selection modulates genetic conflicts and patterns of genomic imprinting
TLDR
A kin‐selection model is developed to investigate the interests of different genes involved in sexual and intragenomic conflict, and it is shown that consideration of these conflicting interests yields novel predictions concerning parent‐of‐origin specific patterns of gene expression and the detrimental effects of different classes of mutation and epimutation at loci underpinning sexually selected phenotypes. Expand
The Evolution of Sexual Systems in Animals
TLDR
It is made that it is useful to view transitions from simultaneous hermaphroditism to dioecy as the result of selection for decreasing phenotypic plasticity and vice versa. Expand
THE ROLE OF ANDRODIOECY AND GYNODIOECY IN MEDIATING EVOLUTIONARY TRANSITIONS BETWEEN DIOECY AND HERMAPHRODITISM IN THE ANIMALIA
  • S. Weeks
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 2012
TLDR
In animals, such transitions were associated with size specialization between the sexes, whereas in plants these transitions were to avoid inbreeding depression, and species transitioning from hermaphroditic ancestors were more common than gynodioecious, contrasting with similar transitions in plants. Expand
Sex Determination, Sex Chromosomes, and Karyotype Evolution in Insects
TLDR
A large database on karyotypes and sex chromosomes in insects, containing information on over 13000 species covering 29 orders of insects, is established, which constitutes a unique starting point to report phylogenetic patterns on the distribution of sex determination mechanisms, sex chromosomes, and karyotype among insects.

TLDR
A fascinating collection of six articles in this special issue on Hermaphroditism & Sex Determination impressively documents some important challenges to the understanding of sex determination, and the specification of male and female reproductive function when these need to occur within the same individual rather than in two separate individuals.

  • B. Normark
  • Biology, Medicine

  • 2004
TLDR
This hypothesis helps to explain the ecological correlates of the origins of haplodiploidsy, as well as such otherwise puzzling phenomena as obligate cannibalism by male Micromalthus beetles, reversion to diploidy by aposymbiotic male stictococcid scale insects, and the bizarre genomic constitution of scale insect bacteriomes.

Intragenomic conflict as an evolutionary force
  • L. Hurst
  • Biology

TLDR
It is argued that intragenomic conflict might be an important evolutionary force, and may influence the evolution of sex determining systems, sex allocation systems and post-zygotic isolating mechanisms. Expand
The evolution of unusual chromosomal systems in coccoids: extraordinary sex ratios revisited
TLDR
A model of the evolution of paternal genome loss in coccoids from an ancestral system of XX‐XO sex determination is presented, based on Hamilton's (1967) theory that different genetic elements within the genome have different unbeatable sex ratios. Expand
Moving to mate: the evolution of separate and combined sexes in multicellular organisms
TLDR
It is found that changes in adult mate‐search efficiency are significantly correlated with changes in breeding system, and this result is robust to uncertainties in the phylogenies. Expand

  • 1995
TLDR
This work has shown that sexes are the result of selection on nuclear genes to coordinate the inheritance of cytoplasmic genomes so as to prevent competition between unrelated cy toplasmics genomes and this hypothesis is tested against five comparative predictions and shown to receive considerable empirical support.

Genomic conflict in scale insects: the causes and consequences of bizarre genetic systems
TLDR
The role of inter‐ and intra‐genomic conflicts in one large insect taxon: the scale insects is considered and possible experimental and comparative approaches are outlined to test more effectively how important genomic conflicts have been. Expand
Turnover of sex chromosomes induced by sexual conflict
TLDR
In this theoretical study, it is shown that an autosomal gene under sexually antagonistic selection can cause the spread of a new sex-determining gene linked to it, which can account for the origin of newSex-Determining loci, the transposition of an ancestral sex-D determining gene to an autosome, and the maintenance of multiple sex- determining factors in species that lack heteromorphic sex chromosomes.

Cytoplasmic male sterility in plants: molecular evidence and the nucleocytoplasmic conflict.
TLDR
Molecular data from recent molecular studies on cytoplasmic male sterility indicate that novel chimeric genes, resulting from duplications and rearrangements of mitochondrial DNA sequences, are involved in its control. Expand
An advantage for the evolution of male haploidy and systems with similar genetic transmission
TLDR
There is therefore counter-selection on fathers to produce diploid sons, and if the right genetic variation arises this countering selection will revert male haploidy to diploids, which applies to large, random-mating populations but not necessarily to inbred populations. Expand
Sexual conflict, sex allocation and the genetic system
TLDR
This work considers how biased gene transmission, as expressed in different genetic systems, enhances the opportunity for sex ratio conflict and gives empirical examples that confirm that males and females have the opportunity to influence sex ratios. Expand
