All crocodilians, most turtlesmany fishand some lizards exhibit TSD. Reptiles in which both incubation temperature and sex chromosomes interact to determine sex may represent "transitional" evolutionary states between two end points: complete GSD and complete TSD. Journal of Heredity.
Heterodon nasicus gloydi-Texas. More examples of context-dependent sex determination will be studied in Chapter Did you know?
Bull, James, and Richard Vogt. This is a bit surprising, given that we just mentioned above that evolution has produced animals that handle sex determination in a huge variety of ways. Threshold to maturity in a long-lived reptile: interactions of temperature sex determination in turtles in Worcester, size, and growth.
Fortunately, there are a number of candidates—proteins that control the flow of ions into and out of cells. Accepted : 21 February
The evolutionary advantages and disadvantages of temperature-dependent sex determination are discussed in Chapter Fertility and Sterility. In this species, high incubation temperature during egg development reverses genotypic males ZZ into phenotypic females; so females can be ZZ or ZW, but males are always ZZ.
