Valenzuela, Nicole. At temperatures in between, the broods will give rise to individuals of both sexes. Functional Ecology. Many species—such as several species of turtle and lizards, like the green iguana—have X and Y sex chromosomes again, like mammalswith females being "homogametic," that is, having two identical X chromosomes.
In the s, David Crews, a biologist at the University of Texas at Austinand colleagues found that some environmental pollutants caused sex-altering effects in turtles and other reptiles.
Chapter Environmental Health, Pollution and Toxicology - Chapter Environmental Health, Pollution and Toxicology Disease Disease is often due to an imbalance resulting from poor adjustment between the individual and the Dev Genes Evol — Meiotic sex likely has a single origin, which dates back to the origin of eukaryotes .
A full understanding of the diversity of sex determination mechanisms will require that we expand the taxonomic breadth of study systems well beyond classic model organisms. Bibcode : Sci Here, we examine the sex ratios of juvenile southern flounder populations across several years and in a number of nursery locations along the coast of NC, USA that show consistent differences in water temperatures.
Physiological and Biochemical Zoology. While TSD has been observed in many reptile and fish species, the genetic differences between sexes and molecular mechanisms of TSD have not been disclosed. Search term.
