Description

This volume reviews our current understanding for how sex determination is initiated and how it results in sexual dimorphic development. Chapters discussing work on different model systems provide a basis for understanding similarities that exist between different species. Coverage includes discussion of sexual development of the soma in C. elegans; sexual development of the germline in C. elegans; sexual development of the soma in Drosophila; sexual development of the germline in Drosophila; sexual development of the soma in the mouse; sexual development of the germline in the mouse; control of sex-specific behavior in Drosophila; and control of sex-specific behavior in vertebrates.

Key Features

  • Uncovers the latest research findings on sexual determination and sexual development
  • Model systems illustrate key sexual similarities
  • Explores in-depth the origins of sex specific behavior

Readership

Graduate students and scientists in developmental biology, mathematical sciences, biomathematics, and general life sciences.
