Lincoln Solomon Posted over 1 year ago Why, or more importantly, how, did sexual reproduction of life forms evolve? If i may sum up so far: Essentially there are theories (let's assume evolutionary) about two aspects of sexual; reproduction: One to do with why it should be advantageous (introducing recombination, which is assumed to be a good thing ...), the other as to its origin, which is murkier water altogether. KPs timeline " gene transfer -> multicellular reproduction with gene transfer -> separate sexes" looks logical, but those arrows '->" need some mechanistic explaination. This is what I want to know about, from an evolutionary point of view. Talk to me.
