Speed & Duplex on NIC - Auto Negotiation setting - how does it detrmine speed?

I just wondered why my server NIC, which is set to auto negotiate speed, is running at 100mbps.  Though the NIC is capable of 1Gbps, my switches are 100mbps - is this why the auto negotiation will set my NIC speed to 100mbps?
