The Development of Sex in Vertebrates


THE title of this book is apt to be misleading, for, as Prof. Brambell explains in his preface, he intends to deal not with the dynamics of sex development, but with the morphology and physiology of the gonads and with the genetics of sex determination. He claims the right of an author to treat the subject as it interests him, and so it is to be expected that the reader may think that emphasis is frequently misplaced.
