Evolution of alternative sex-determining mechanisms in teleost fishes

  title={Evolution of alternative sex-determining mechanisms in teleost fishes},
  author={Judith E. Mank and Daniel E. L. Promislow and John C. Avise},
We compiled information from the literature on the taxonomic distributions in extant teleost fishes of alternative sex-determination systems: male-heterogametic (XY) gonochorism, female-heterogametic (ZW) gonochorism, hermaphroditism, unisexuality, and environmental dependency. Then, using recently published molecular phylogenies based on whole-genomic or partial mitochondrial DNA sequences, we inferred the histories and evolutionary transitions between these reproductive modes by employing… CONTINUE READING
