The Bynoe's gecko (Heteronotia binoei) can be found ranging over many of Australia's different landscapes. While some other species of gecko are specialised to live in particular habitats, such as on rocks, up trees, or on sand dunes, Bynoe's gecko is a habitat generalist, happy to live just about anywhere. But one location it's especially fond of is man-made rubbish dumps.
The Bynoe's gecko is of special interest to reproductive biologists because some populations of Bynoe's consist entirely of females; identical, genetic clones of one another reproducing without the need for males. The phenomenon is called "parthenogenesis" and comes from the Greek parthenos, "virgin" and genesis, "creation".
