Diagram of monogonont rotifer life cycle. Asexual females undergo ameiotic oogenesis to produce diploid eggs. Upon encountering a mixis induction cue (1), asexual females produce sexual daughters who produce eggs via meiosis (2). When unfertilized, these haploid eggs develop into males (3) who fertilize sexual females to produce diploid resting eggs (4). Resting eggs develop into asexual females.
