Suicidal reproduction is an interesting phenomenon found in semelparous plants and animals. This is also known as big-bang reproduction. The semelparous organisms reproduce only once in their lives and then die. Why do these semelparous organisms die immediately after reproducing while others live onto reproduce repeatedly has been a matter of discussion since long. The present review discusses the fate of suicidal reproduction in the light of recent researches available so far.
