Default Kleptogenesis (in CC amphib glossary)

Kleptogenesis: A method of reproduction whereby a female ‘steals’ sperm from a [sympatric] sexual male. The sperm is required to stimulate an egg to divide (gynogenesis) but does not fertilize the egg and may or may not contribute chromosomes to the offspring. Unisexual Ambystoma utilize this unique method of reproduction.
