Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)."What struck us as unbelievable was that atrazine could cause such dramatic effects at such low levels," says Tyrone Hayes, an associate professor of integrative biology at the University of California, Berkeley, who led the frog study."If you take five grains of salt, divide this weight by five thousand, that is the amount of atrazine that causes these abnormalities," added Hayes.Teleosts are characterized by a remarkable breadth of sexual mechanisms including various forms of hermaphroditism.Sparidae is a fish family exhibiting gonochorism or hermaphroditism even in closely related species.About one in 4,500 babies show ambiguous genitalia at birth, such as a clitoris that looks like a penis, or vice versa.
