While aromatase is involved in more processes than only TSD, it has also been shown to play a role in certain tumor development. It is not thought that turtles can reverse their sex after this period. Turtle species that display TSD are thought to follow one of two patterns of temperature dependence.
We still have much to research, but we are interested in how our results relate with other TSD species diversity and evolution. Ohno, Susumu. Zoological Science. Vertebrate Life.
Hatchlings from single-sex producing temperatures also had higher first-year survivorship than the hatchlings from the temperature that produces both sexes. These chemicals block the conversion of testosterone to estradiol during development so each sex offspring can be produced at all temperatures.
However, once an individual becomes female, it will not revert to being male Coe Some reptiles such as crocodilians and some turtles are known to display temperature-dependent sex determination TSDwhere the ambient temperature of the developing eggs determines the individual's sex.
We still have much to research, but we are interested in how our results relate with other TSD species diversity and evolution. The turtles were incubated at temperatures that produce solely males, both sexes, and solely females. Bibcode : Natur.
