Finally, as in other species of this family, protogynous
hermaphroditism is present (Hastings, 1989; Oda et al., 1993; Lluch-Cota, 1996; Ocampo-Cervantes, 2002), leading to early gonad maturation, reducing juvenile growth rates.
In my research, I aim to elucidate the role of cortisol in mediating sex change in a protogynous
(female-to-male) hermaphrodite, the endemic New Zealand spotty wrasse (Notolabrus celidotus) (Figure 1)
The interfloral protogynous
dichogamy of Dorstenia arifolia and D.
sex change in the reed frog Hyperolius viridiflavus.
Machilus thunbergii is a heterodichogamous species, consisting of two types of protogynous
and bisexual flowers at the individual-tree level: a morning female-afternoon male morph and a morning maleafternoon female morph .
Abstract.--The blackeye goby is a protogynous
reef fish common to the northeastern Pacific Ocean.
The hogfish is what the biologists call a protogynous
hermaphrodite: juveniles start out as female and then mature to become male.
sex change in territorial-haremic fishes: models and evidence.
hermaphrodite; fished commercially and for sport, although it is listed as "Near Threatened" by the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources in its Red list of Threatened Species (IUCN, 2014).
albus swamp eels are protogynous
hermaphrodites and change naturally from female to male, supposedly in response to environmental cues (24).
Flowers are protogynous
with a long pistillate phase and a short pollen-dispersing staminate phase.
The male polymorphism is the consequence of a distinctive reproductive strategy involving protogynous
hermaphroditism in some if not all species (Lang 1973; Sieg 1983; Ishimaru, 1985; Larsen 2005).
