The process of gonadal sex differentiation in Amphiprion clarkii was investigated for 2 years at Murote Beach, Shikoku Island, Japan. Six color phases were discriminated on the basis of the caudal fin coloration, which corresponded well to six gonadal phases. From changes of the color phases with growth, three life history pathways were detected: (1) subadult male → subadult female → adult female, (2) subadult male → adult male → adult female, (3) subadult male → adult male. Different pathways… CONTINUE READING
