When is sex environmentally determined? Whenever data were available from more than 1 year for a population, we calculated the sex ratios from the total number of individuals recorded over that period which is equivalent to the weighted mean of yearly sex ratios.
The genetic sex-determination system predicts adult sex ratios in tetrapods. We know that the random segregation of sex chromosomes generally produces a offspring sex ratio in GSD species and, therefore, mothers invest equally into producing males and females [ 14 ].
Shine R, Elphick MJ, Donnellan S Co-occurrence of multiple, supposedly incompatible modes of sex determination in a lizard population. Lacertid sex chromosomes can be dated back to the Mesozoic epoch and are of comparable age to avian sex chromosomes Unfertilized eggs develop into haploid individuals, which are the males.
There are some reptiles, such as the boa constrictor and Komodo dragon that can reproduce both sexually and exploring the evolution of environmental sex determination especially in reptiles in New York, depending on whether a mate is available. A phylogeny and revised classification of Squamata, including species of lizards and snakes.
Turtles of the genera Geoemyda and Pangshura Testudines: Geoemydidae lack differentiated sex chromosomes: the end of a year error cascade for Pangshura. Chromosome number and sex determination coevolve in turtles. Relative gene dose ratios between sexes in 45 species of lacertids and five species representing outgroups teiids and amphisbaenians from the family Blanidae.

These skews may compromise population viability [ 16 ] and influence socio-sexual interactions and life histories, for example by inducing homosexual behaviours and increasing female mortality [ 29 ]. We aimed to collect all available data for species with known sex determination, so no statistical methods were used to pre-determine sample sizes.
Of these, we generated shapefiles for 72 species with TSD. The evolution of sex ratios and sex-determining systems. Significance of the association is indicated by the width of the arrows.
