Although I can't refer you to any primary literature right now, people have looked at these things to some extent. Check F. H. Pough's textbook "Vertebrate Life". It has a whole section on TDS. I know that this has had effects on conservation of sea turtles, before people realised that these animals had Temp. dependent sex determination. This has also been suggested by some as a possible explanation for the extinction of dinosaurs.
Hope this helps,
Philip.


: I was wondering if anyone knew of any current or past research on sea turtle hatchling sex ratios. I was thinking an increased percentage of female hatchlings would follow global warming, especially for populations isolated to single remote islands like the select Brazialian turtle populations. Thanks
