The SRY is then activated in only certain areas, causing development of testes in some areas by beginning a series of events starting with the upregulation of SOX9, and in other areas not being active (causing the growth of ovarian tissues).Thus, testicular and ovarian tissues will both be present in the same individual.Intersex is in some caused by unusual sex hormones; the unusual hormones may be caused by an atypical set of sex chromosomes.One possible pathophysiologic explanation of intersex in humans is a parthenogenetic division of a haploid ovum into two haploid ova.

Since the adults take several years to change from female to male, the broodstock are extremely valuable individuals.The distribution of self-fertilization rates among animals is similar to that of plants, suggesting that similar processes are operating to direct the evolution of selfing in animals and plants.which derives from Hermaphroditus (Ἑρμαφρόδιτος), the son of Hermes and Aphrodite in Greek mythology.A closer analogy to hermaphroditism in botany is the presence of separate male and female flowers on the same individual—such plants are called monoecious.

Monoecy is especially common in conifers, but occurs in only about 7% of angiosperm species.

Arthropods are the phylum with the largest number of species.
