The Evolution of Sex Determination

Leo Beukeboom and Nicolas Perrin

  • Provides a current synthesis of the latest theoretical and empirical research on the evolution of sex determination mechanisms, the first for 30 years
  • Focuses on the evolutionary consequences of sex determination mechanisms, both at the genome level (genome alterations, gene regulation, and sex chromosome evolution) and the organismal level (reproductive modes, behaviour and life history evolution, sexual selection, and speciation)
  • Integrates work on a wide range of taxonomic groups, identifying avenues for future research
