Sex ratio variability in a laboratory colony of large toothed redbacked voles clethrionomys rufocanus rufocanus and the trivers willard hypothesis


Ekologiya (Moscow) (5): 73-79
Sex ratio variability in a laboratory colony of large toothed redbacked voles clethrionomys rufocanus rufocanus and the trivers willard hypothesis
The variability of the secondary sex ratio in large-toothed redbacked voles from a laboratory colony was studied. Although the total sex ratio for all litters was approximately 1:1, in the progeny of some females a definite excess of sons or daughters was observed in accord with the Trivers-Willard hypothesis. However, the differential mortality of embryos of different sexes and the correlation between a female's weight and the sex ratio in her progeny-both anticipated on the basis of the hypothesis-were not observed.
