About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1927 as part of the Cambridge Comparative Physiology series, this book 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. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in genetics or the history of science.
