However, it is possible to have two parents with black hair who conceive a red-headed child.
Sex determination is an evolutionarily ancient, key developmental pathway governing sexual differentiation in animals.
Sex determination systems are remarkably variable between species or groups of species, however, and the evolutionary forces underlying transitions between these systems are poorly understood.
