Sex influenced traits are controlled by genes present on autosomes , hence such genes are present in both the sexes but their expression varies in different sexes.


Examples of sex influenced traits may include soft facial hair in females vs coarse facial hairs in males. Another important example is baldness in males, typically expressed in presence of high level of hormone testosterone . Females having the same allelic combination will not express the trait.
