Mating-System Evolution: All Roads Lead to Selfing.
Journal Article (Journal Article)
Fungi reproduce via both heterothallic outcrossing and homothallic selfing modes, and transitions between the two are common throughout the tree of life. A new study reports that the transition from heterothallism to homothallism is common and has repeatedly punctuated the evolutionary trajectory across a major lineage of the fungal kingdom.
