Ecological and evolutionary applications for environmental sex reversal of fishA. McNair, P. M. Lokman, G. P. Closs and S. Nakagawa, Quarterly Review of Biology, 90:23-44. 2015.
Environmental sex reversal (ESR), which results in a mismatch between genotypic and phenotypic sex, is well documented in numerous fish species and may be induced by chemical exposure. Historically, research involving piscine ESR has been carried out with a view to improving ...
