However, a direct link with developmental rate has not yet been demonstrated. Nevertheless, recent theoretical modeling suggest that sex-determining systems that are highly canalized toward being responsive only to temperature may be suboptimal and that mechanisms that integrate several different sources of environmental input into sex determination should be favored by selection (Schwanz et al. 2010). , see Brennan and Capel 2004; Gempe and Beye 2010; Stothard and Pilgrim 2003). We therefore limit our discussion to the key elements that define the structure of the genetic networks in order to provide a baseline for the comparative evidence from species with less detailed information.
