Abstract

The two fundamental aspects of sexual reproduction, recombination and outcrossing, appear to be maintained respectively by the advantages of recombinational repair and genetic complementation. Genetic variation is produced as a byproduct of recombinational repair, but it may not be the function of sexual reproduction.
