Sex Ratio "Experiment"
I'm thinking that there's a lot of ideas about what controls sex ratios out
there, and lots of us would like to know!
So, I was thinking we should do an experiment together, or rather collect
data on the experiments we are already doing.
What I'm proposing is that volunteers do a few extra things to collect data
on the fish they are breeding and the resulting sex ratio and send the data
to me. If there's a big and obvious pattern it should fall out
statistically in a hurry.
Here's how it'd work:
First, folks collect easy to collect data on hypothesized factors:
mostly temp, pH, any others?
at different times in their breeding process:
spawning, incubation, hatching and say, 2 weeks of age.
Then send the info to me, and I'll do my best to pull out whatever patterns
I can from what data I get.
Any thoughts before we start this?
