Die sexuellen Zwischenstufen

    Article metrics


    IT is now eleven years since Dr. Goldschmidt brought out the well-known volume of which an English translation appeared in 1923 as “The Mechanism and Physiology of Sex-Determination”. The present work elaborates that section of his former book, which treated of what are generally termed hermaphrodites, a proper understanding of which is so essential to a full appreciation of the nature of sex itself. To that understanding no one has contributed more than the author; for it was through his remarkable researches on the races of the gipsy moth (Lymantria dispar) that the problem of the intersex has crystallised out of that vast conglomerate of miscellaneous knowledge comprised under the heading of sex.
