Bonellia viridisa marine worm, has location-dependent sex determination; sex depends on where the larvae land. Crews D. The pathways toward maleness and femaleness in reptiles are just being delineated. The branchiopod crustacean Daphnia magna parthenogenetically produces male progeny in response to a combination of three environmental factors, namely a reduced photoperiod in autumn, shortage of food and raised population density.
While sex hormones have been observed to be influenced by temperature, thus potentially altering sexual phenotypes, specific genes in the gonadal differentiation pathway display temperature influenced expression. Spencer and Janzen found further support for the Charnov-Bull model by incubating painted turtles Chrysemys picta at different temperatures and measuring various characteristics indicative of fitness.

While the sex of most snakes and most lizards is determined by sex chromosomes at the time of fertilization, the sex of most turtles and all species of crocodilians is determined by the environment after fertilization.
It is particularly important to ensure that surfaces are rinsed free of residual chemicals and that personnel have appropriate equipment to protect themselves from exposure to hot water or chemical agents used in the process. If traps are used, methods should be humane; traps used to catch pests alive require frequent observation and humane euthanasia after capture.
Even though that calculation can be used to determine minimal ventilation needed to prevent heat buildup, other factors-such as odor control, allergen control, particle generation, and control of metabolically generated gases-might necessitate ventilation beyond the calculated minimum.

In most turtles females are produced at high temperatures and males at low temperatures. Acceptable primary enclosures. Global Change Biology.
