The question as to what determines whether an animal shall he a male or a female, is a very ancient one and one that has held the attention of the greatest scientists (3. p. 396). A great deal of investigation has been carried on along these lines and many new discoveries have been made which have clarified, in a large measure the whole problem of sex and its determination. It has been found out that sex is really a very complicated phenomenon which cannot be determined by any one factor alone, and also that it may be Influenced or interefered with by certain other factors outside of the sex-chromosomes.
