Evolution of Sex: Why Do Organisms Shuffle Their Genotypes?

Aneil F Agrawal. Curr Biol.

Abstract

Sexual processes alter associations among alleles. To understand the evolution of sex, we need to know both the short-term and long-term consequences of changing these genetic associations. Ultimately, we need to identify which evolutionary forces--for example, selection, genetic drift, migration--are responsible for building the associations affected by sex.
