Environmental Sex Determination. Current evidence does not support the existence of plant sex chromosomes more ancient than those of M. Many of the non-sex determining X-linked genes are responsible for abnormal conditions such as hemophiliaDuchenne muscular dystrophyfragile-X syndromesome high blood pressure, congenital night blindness, G6PD deficiency, and the most common human genetic disorder, red-green color blindness.
Unlike seed plants, where gametophytes are always unisexual, in bryophytes they may produce male, female, or both types of gamete. Firstly, it took two years for Morgan to find a white-eyed male. The U and V chromosomes are heteromorphic with U larger than V, and are frequently both larger than the autosomes.
In these animals, it is the female gamete that determines the sex of an individual.

In turtles and crocodiles, sex is determined by the temperature of the surrounding environment at a specific period in the development of a fertilized egg. Whether you are a male or female depends on the presence or absence of certain chromosomes. They produce sperm cells that contain either an X chromosome or no sex chromosome, which is designated as O.
Sex Chromosomes X-O. The X chromosome resembles a large autosomal chromosome with a long and a short arm.
