Finally, by examining sex ratio and temperature data from natural nests, we provide evidence for FM TSD across a broader range of temperatures.
We are finally beginning to understand the mechanisms by which this masterpiece is created.
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.
