Discusses the role of heredity and environment in determining the sex of various organisms.  Indicates that in some organisms it is the environment in which a given genotype functions that determines whether differentiation shall occur as male or as female.  This is exemplified by sex determination in certain snails, mosses, and worms.  Portrays a difference in genetic constitution as primarily responsible for sex determination in other organisms as for a unicellular plant (Chlamydomanas), certain grasshoppers, Drosophila, man, and the mouse.  Discusses the genetic basis for sex mosaics (gynandromorphs) and indicates the influences of the "y" chromosome in determining sex in man. Lecture by Dr. C. Stern.
