Do mothers determine the sex of their babies?


*Do mothers determine the sex of their babies?*

The Russian scientist Theodosius Dobzhansky wrote: "Nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of evolution".

In next week's edition of *In Conversation with Noel Cheer* on Triangle/Stratos Television, Dr Valerie Grant of Auckland University will show how the Darwin's discoveries can explain aspects of human behaviour as diverse as the sex of offspring to the application of altruism.

*Stratos Television*, Nationwide: Monday September 5th at 8:00pm (repeated September 7th at 6:30am and September 9th at 12:30pm). Stratos is found on Sky Digital Channel 89 and Freeview (satellite and HD) Channel 21. Stratos is found also on Telstraclear Cable Channel 89 in Wellington, Kapiti and Christchurch and on the streaming television website ecasttv.co.nz

*Triangle Television,* Auckland (UHF Channels 41, 42 and 52): Wednesday September 7th at 7:00pm (repeated September 9th at 12:30pm)
