This process is known as parthenogenesis , where unfertilized eggs develop into embryos without sperm.
Some species consist only of females that produce their daughters from unfertilized eggs, a type of reproduction called parthenogenesis .
cyclic parthenogenesis is well displayed in aphids
Gynogenesis is like parthenogenesis in that diploid zygotes inheriting all chromosomes from their mother can develop without a genetic contribution from males.
Reproductive modes include sexual reproduction and parthenogenesis , but much remains to be known about development.
In asexual reproduction, eggs develop without fertilization, a process called parthenogenesis .
It reportedly reproduces exclusively by parthenogenetic female gametes and fragmentation.
In parthenogenetically reproducing populations, traits involved in sexual reproduction are no longer under selection and thus potentially subject to vestigialization.
Sexual reproduction in cyclically parthenogenetic rotifers results in the production of diapausing, fertilized eggs, which can survive for decades in sediment egg banks.
However, such unmated workers can produce either males or females parthenogenetically .
