This special topic issue of Sexual Development gives an overview of sex reversal in vertebrates, from fishes naturally changing their sex, to rodents escaping the mammalian SRY-determining system. It offers eight up-to-date reviews on specific subjects in sex reversal, considering fishes, amphibians, reptiles, birds, marsupials, and placental mammals, including humans.
The broad scope of represented animals makes this ideal for students and researchers, especially those interested in the evolution of sex-determination mechanism, as they seek to update their knowledge of sex differentiation in vertebrates.
