In females, without excess androgens, these become the clitorisurethra and vaginaand labia. In many animals, differences in the exposure of a fetal brain to sex hormones are correlated with significant differences of brain structure and function, which correlate with adult reproductive behavior.
Genome Biol PLoS Biol 3: e Black pentagons represent CYP11B genes. Sex Dev 7: 95— Alternative reproductive tactics an integrative approach.
In this article, we address three common myths about sex determination and then deconstruct them based on a broad taxonomic survey of animals and plants. More About. The mesonephric system is the precursor to the male genitalia and the paramesonephric to the female reproductive system.
Sexual differentiation in a species does not have to produce one recognizable female type and one recognizable male type. The transcriptome of its Indonesian congener, L. Fetal testis is in the internal inguinal ring. This variety has stimulated investigation into what evolutionary forces drive the turnover of sex determination mechanisms, what molecular mechanisms underlie the different modes of sex determination, and why sex determination is labile in some taxa and not in others.

Haag ES Why two sexes? Genotypic sex determination: an individual's sex is established by its genotype e. Nat Genet — Bibcode : NatSR Another threat to ESD systems comes from within: they may be prone to invasion by genetic elements that favor biased sex ratios see below.
