Reproductive Biology

T. longicaudatus is known to exhibit several major reproductive strategies: individuals can be sexual (either male or female with populations that are either half male and half female or are female-biased), parthenogenetic, or hermaphroditic. What is interesting about T. longicaudatus is that different populations exhibit a different reproductive strategy or combination of strategies. This fact suggests that these different reproducing populations might be considered different subspecies or species in the future.
