Together, our findings demonstrate that C. elegans hermaphrodites actively regulate the choice between selfing and crossing, highlight the existence of natural variation in hermaphrodite choice, and lay the groundwork for molecular dissection of this evolutionarily important trait.

A theoretical argument shows that the low frequency of male mating observed in C. elegans can support male-specific genes against mutational degeneration. At approximately at 45-50 hrs posthatch at 22C-25C, a newly matured hermaphrodite lays its first eggs, hence completing its 3-day reproductive life cycle (Byerly et al., 1976; Lewis and Fleming, 1995).

Intriguingly, we further show that 40 wild isolates representing C. elegans global diversity exhibit extensive and continuous variation in hermaphrodite reproductive outcome. The L2d larva retains the potential to form either a dauer larva or an L3 larva, depending on the persistence of the dauer inducing environmental parameters (Riddle, 1988).
