They may be merely sex-indicating and after a case of sex reversal they can not even be that. The sex of the egg may be determined even before fertilization takes place. Many botanists formerly thought that a diploid number of chromosomes was the cause of sporophytic expression and a haploid number the cause of gametophytic expression, but we now know… CONTINUE READING
