About this book

Originally published in 1927 as part of the Cambridge Comparative Physiology series, The Genetics of Sexuality in Animals examines how genetic information is revealed through the physiology, specifically the biological sex, of an animal. Crew explains the genetic mechanism of sex determination, hermaphroditism, sex-reversal and the ways in which an animal population maintains an appropriate male to female ratio. The Genetics of Sexuality in Animals will be of value to anyone with an interest in genetics or the history of science.
