Furthermore, the process leading to sex determination under the influence of temperature poses problems that are not encountered by species with genetic sex determination. This should dramatically reduce the likelihood of inbreeding.
The size-advantage model states that individuals of a given sex reproduce more effectively if they are a certain size or age. Genes Basel11 411 Apr
Embryonic brain-gonadal axis in temperature-dependent sex determination of reptiles: a role for P aromatase CYP Gov't Review. In the context of the plant sexuality of flowering plants angiospermsthere are two forms of dichogamy: protogyny —female function precedes male function—and protandry —male function precedes female function.

Apparently, in animals where both occur, certain incubation temperatures can "reverse" the genotypic sex of an embryo. Skip navigation. Carroll, R. In many reptiles, amphibians, and fishes, the environment plays a key role in determining the sexes of individuals.

When Bull and Eric Charnov, at the University of Utah, in Salt Lake City, Utah, proposed a model for the evolution of environmental sex determination inthey only suggested applying the model to plants and invertebrates, and not to vertebrates.
In the late s, James J. Fleming A, Crews D Estradiol and incubation temperature modulate regulation of steroidogenic factor 1 in the developing gonad of the red-eared slider turtle.
