Project Year: 1993 - 1994    Investigator(s): Tetsuo KUWAMURA
The further analysis of our data on both-ways sex change in the monogamous gobies, Paragobiodon and Gobiodon, suggested that the change of social status as the result of movement between groups was the main factor for the evolution of their both-w...
