We thank D. Notice, however, that except for our present study, the oscillating profiles used in all previous experiments differed greatly from real nest profiles see Fig. Hermaphrodite Intersex Disorders of sex development Sex reversal.
For reptiles with temperature-dependent sex determination, thermal variability may be as important as thermal averages.
However, in the lowlands, temperatures are more constant and a longer activity season allows for favorable conditions for TSD. Read Our th Anniversary Issue. Shaffer, H.
However, in the lowlands, temperatures are more constant and a longer activity season allows for favorable conditions for TSD. Putative independent evolutionary reversals from genotypic to temperature-dependent sex determination are associated with accelerated evolution of sex-determining genes in turtles.
