dc.description.abstract Juvenile Midas cichlids, Amphilophus citrinellus, have been reported to have sex determined by social factors. I observed behavior in, and histologically analyzed gonads of, specimens from nature and laboratory to determine the effects of behavioral interaction and relative body size on sex determination. Social conditions were found not to influence whether an individual differentiated as a female or a male. en_US
