About this book

The ratio of the sexes in a population, or the allocation of resources to male versus female reproductive function, is one of the key areas of population genetics. In this text, Karlin and Lessard establish the formal theoretical aspects of the evolution of sex ratio within the constraints of genetic mechanisms of sex determination.
