The genetic outcomes of sex and recombination in long-term functionally parthenogenetic lineages of Australian Sitobion aphids

Wilson, Anastasia; Sunnucks, Paul James


The typical life cycle of an aphid is cyclical parthenogenesis which involves the alternation of sexual and asexual reproduction. However, aphid life cycles, even within a species, can encompass everything on a continuum from obligate sexuality, through facultative sexuality to obligate asexuality. Loss of the sexual cycle in aphids is frequently associated with the introduction of a new pest and can occur for a number of environmental and genetic reasons. Here we investigate loss of sexual...[Show more]
