Abstract

Inherent difficulties in determining the sex of free-ranging, sexually monomorphic species (where both sexes look the same) often prevents a sex-specific approach to their study. However, accounting for sex-differences in population parameters can have important conservation and management implications, as one sex may be more susceptible to threats than the other.
