  • In fish, an amazing variety of sex determination mechanisms are known, ranging from hermaphroditism to gonochorism and from environmental to genetic sex determination. This makes fish especially suited for studying sex determination from the evolutionary point of view. In several fish groups, different sex determination mechanisms are found in closely related species, and evolution of this process is still ongoing in recent organisms. The medaka (Oryzias latipes) has an XY-XX genetic sex… CONTINUE READING
