Hello all:


The following is a webpage from CDC with a discussion about unusual 
behaviors that are sometimes caused by disease organisms.  Scroll down 
to "Elsewhere in Nature....Some time ago..." and read about 
parthenogenesis.  The author does not mention aphids, a common sucking 
insect, but they also reproduce parthenogenecally.

Can anything be more incestuous than parthenogenesis?
