The effects of induced masculinization on reproductive and aggressive behaviors of the female mosquitofish, Gambusia affinis affinis


Environmental Biology of Fishes, 292: 127-134
The effects of induced masculinization on reproductive and aggressive behaviors of the female mosquitofish, Gambusia affinis affinis
Female G. affinis were masculinized with the degraded products of 65% stigmastanol-30% B-sitosterol, a phytosterol. The masculinized females were paired with non-treated males, non-treated females, and other masculinized females. The pairs were analysed for reproductive and aggressive behaviour. The behavioural patterns of these pairs were compared statistically to those of the following non-treated pairs: male with male, female with female, and male with female.
