Reproductive Physiology of Marsupials
Sharman, G. B.
Science, 167, 3922, 1221-1228, Feb '70
Describes some unique features of marsupial reproduction which include (1) chromosomal sex determination, (2) reproductive system, (3) birth, (4) location, and (5) embryonic diapause. These features suggest that viviparity evolved separately in eutherian and marsupial stocks after their derivation from a common oviparous ancestor. Bibliography. (LC)
