1976 February 3 - 1976 March 25
"It Only Takes One" examined the topic of parthenogenesis--reproduction without males. The Museum Showcase exhibit explained how parthenogenesis occurs and how it gives rise to all-female species of reptiles. It also covered reproduction without males in both all-female and bi-sexual species of invertebrates. A group of lizards known as whiptails was the highlight of the exhibition which featured photographs, models and miniature habitat groups. The animals themselves were not in the exhibit. Experiments carried out in the Museum's Herpetology Department proved that the lizards were parthenogenetic. The exhibit, supported by the Arthur Ross Foundation, was on view in the Roosevelt Rotunda of the American Museum of Natural History from February 3 until March 25, 1976.
