Data and code for: Parthenogenesis is self-destructive for scaled reptiles

Matthew Moreira, Danny Rojas & Carlos Fonseca
Parthenogenesis is rare in nature. With 39 described true parthenogens, scaled reptiles (Squamata) are the only vertebrates that evolved this reproductive strategy. Parthenogenesis is ecologically advantageous in the short-term, but the young age and rarity of parthenogenetic species indicate it is less advantageous in the long-term. This suggests parthenogenesis is self-destructive: it arises often but is lost due to increased extinction rates, high rates of reversal or both. However, this role of parthenogenesis as a...
