Normark BB. Blackmon H Demuth JP. Sumpter JP, Johnson AC Lessions from endocrine disruption and their application to other issues concerning trace organics in the aquatic environment. Mol Ecol. We find that the phylogenetic distribution of haplodiploidy and related systems is shaped by infrequent origins and even fewer reversions back to diploidy.
The colonies exhibit a polygynous mating system with the dominant males responsible for the majority of successful mating attempts.
Here, localized centromeres are absent and even highly fragmented chromosomes can segregate successfully during meiosis and might enable more flexible karyotypes Melters et al. In order to generate a reference genome for the guppy, we selected a single female and her female descendants from a high-predation population in the Guanapo drainage.
Mating advantage for rare males in wild guppy populations. Comp Biochem Physiol C — Functional and evolutionary implications of gene orthology. Burri, A. Download references.
Evolutionary perspectives on hermaphroditism in fishes. The ultimate mechanism if there were a single one connecting temperature and sex ratio is not known, and several have been proposed. Environmental sex determination, interaction of temperature and genotype in a fish.
Sexual growth dimorphism can favor males genetic sex differentiation in fish in West Sussex. Variation found on female percent due to thermal treatments show that genetic and environmental components are of comparable magnitude, supporting the notion of a continuum between GSD and ESD components of SD in the European sea bass.
Integration of the genetic map and genome assembly of fugu facilitates insights into distinct features of genome evolution in Teleosts and mammals.
Google Preview. Steps in the evolution of heteromorphic sex chromosomes. Psocoptera or book lice are sister to the sucking lice Phthiraptera and contain approximately species. Grey points indicate orders where flightlessness is found in both sexes, red points those where flightlessness is restricted to females and blue points where it is restricted to males.
