Alternation of generations

Alternation of generations: The alternation of generations, in the life cycle of an organism, that exhibit different modes of reproduction; typically sexual (diploid) and asexual (haploid) phases. Also termed metagenesis (Lincoln et al., 1998) (e.g. Daphnia, some rotifers)

Note -Alternation of generations is kept separate from 'asexual' and 'sexual' reproduction because it describes a specific reproductive type in which asexual and sexual phases occur in a defined cycle, separated by an environmental trigger.
