Sexual reproduction is one of the “facts of life” – or is it?
Although sex is common among the tree of life, it is by no means the only way to reproduce, and actually represents a significant evolutionary paradox.
For an organism, sexual reproduction entails significant costs – survival costs, mating costs, and genetic costs.
So, why did sex evolve and persist? Join Dr. Monika Havelka as she explores the costs and benefits of sex from an evolutionary perspective, as we celebrate Charles Darwin’s 204th Birthday!

Professor Monika Havelka is a Senior Lecturer in the Environment Program at University of Toronto Mississauga. She received her PhD in Zoology at the University of Western Ontario and has taught a wide variety of courses in evolutionary biology, ecology and environmental science at UTM. She was twice a semi-finalist and once a finalist in the TVO Best Lecturer Competition.
