Our results unequivocally confirmed previous reports of sexual reproduction (Hodgson et al., 2008; Aheer et al., 2009; Prasad et al., 2012; Huang et al., 2013) but were different from earlier descriptions of obligate parthenogenesis (Kumar et al., 2010; Nikam et al., 2010; Vennila et al., 2010).
The demographic advantage of obligate parthenogenesis for aquatic invertebrates is the possibility of accelerating the life cycle during a short period of favorable conditions (Lynch and Gabriel 1983; Hebert and Hann 1986).

Well, it's a scientific fact that the human Y chromosome is shrinking and may one day die out, which would mean the end of males, perhaps leaving women to produce femaleonly offspring through parthenogenesis. Mankind could also one day succumb to a deadly virus which plugs itself into the DNA sequence which governs male gender - a chilling scenario, indeed ...

In Brustle (Case C-34/10) the CJEU held that a 'human embryo' included "non-fertilised human ovum whose division and further development have been stimulated by parthenogenesis" as they were "capable of commencing the process of development of a human being just as an embryo created by fertilisation of an ovum can do so." The CJEU noted that whereas in Brustle, written observations presented to the Court stated that parthenotes did have the capacity to develop into a human being, none of the interested parties (which included a number of observations from Member States) in this case disputed that this was not correct according to current scientific knowledge.
The longevity of adult females and males varied significantly when they were reared as larvae on these different crops (sexual reproduction: female: F = 1.591, df = 3, 102, P = 0.002; male: F = 38.306, df = 3, 107, P = 0.022; parthenogenesis: F = 8.359, df = 3, 103, P < 0.001) (Table 2).
