Nevertheless, in practice, more males than females are conceived; and this would seem to indicate that the sperm carrying the Y chromosome has some sort of advantage over the X bearing sperm. However, it is interesting to note that the greater surviving power of females causes this discrepancy to be cancelled out by the time of adolescence, and during adult life the initial imbalance is even reversed. SEX-LINKED MUTATIONS In some rare cases it is found that there is one sex chromosome too little or one too many.

An explanation of the inheritance of like and unlike characteristics is a subject which is as fascinating as it is complex. Much of the experimental work on which the principles of human genetics depend has been done originally with rapidly breeding creatures such as Drosophila, the fruit fly, and on plants which can be artificially pollinated. The laws of inheritance derived from such experiments have been shown, by statistical studies of human pedigrees, to operate in man as well. But the genetic studies of man are inevitably complicated by such factors as the small size of human families; the long and slow rate of reproduction; the difficulty of eliminating environmental factors; and the enormous numbers of variable factors involved in, what is from a genetic point of view, random mating.

It has been estimated that at birth each ovary contains about 70,000 cells which are potentially capable of becoming mature ova, but most of these disintegrate before the menopause. During the menstrual cycle, some of the cells mature, but usually only one mature ovum is released. The release of the ovum is called ovulation. In the ovary, the maturing ovum is surrounded by a sphere of cells which make up a follicle. The growth of this follicle is governed by follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), which is another gonadotrophin released by the pituitary gland (FSH is also found in males).
