  1. Berg C, Gyllenhammar I, Kvarnryd M. Xenopus tropicalis as a test system for developmental and reproductive toxicity. J Toxicol Environ Health A. 2009;72:219-25 pubmed publisher
    ..tropicalis and those reported in fish, birds, and mammals after developmental exposure to estrogens make X. tropicalis promising model for research on endocrine disruption and developmental reproductive toxicity. ..
  2. Semerikov V, Lagercrantz U, Tsarouhas V, Rönnberg Wästljung A, Alstrom Rapaport C, Lascoux M. Genetic mapping of sex-linked markers in Salix viminalis L. Heredity (Edinb). 2003;91:293-9 pubmed
    ..Our data suggest that a single locus governs the sex determination and that nonrecombining sex chromosomes are absent in S. viminalis. A close association was found between skewed sex ratio and segregation distortion at this locus. ..
  3. Berg C, Backström T, Winberg S, Lindberg R, Brandt I. Developmental exposure to fluoxetine modulates the serotonin system in hypothalamus. PLoS ONE. 2013;8:e55053 pubmed publisher
    ..Given that SSRIs are present in the aquatic environment the current results warrant further investigation into the neurobehavioral effects of SSRIs in aquatic wildlife...

    ..Our results show that progestins can affect sexual development in fish and that the androgenic progestin levonorgestrel induces a male phenotype at concentrations similar to those detected in aquatic environments. ..

    ..Thus, it is possible that the same mechanism generates the female biased sex ratio in natural willow populations. ..
