Abstract

The diploid chromosome number of 1458 taxa of Eutherian mammals was found to be normally distributed, with a mean of 47 and a mode of 48. The relationships of chromosomal with genic evolution and of diploid number with fitness are discussed. Authorities for the diploid numbers of 102 species are...

Abstract

In an examination of over 100 pigmy mice from different parts of Africa, marked differences between taxonomically similar species and subspecies were found in the chromosome complements, in contrast to Eurasian mice which show great uniformity.-Abstr. Eng. summ.

Abstract

This comprehensive paper, which incorporates much material already published by the author in shorter papers [see A. B. A., 20, No. 315, and 21, Nos. 338, 339 and 871] deals with the sex chromosomes of the Muridae, with chromosome numbers and with the number of arms. Revised data are given for 14...

Abstract

Various criticisms, including the following, are made of an article by Prof. Darlington appearing in Nature [Lond.], 171: 191-194 [see A. B. A., 21, No. 988].
Darlington's hypothesis that Mesocricetus auratus (2n = 44) is a tetraploid species resulting from the crossing of Cricetus cricetits (2n =...

Abstract

Observations were made on the karyotypes of 2 Microtinae and 4 Cricetinae. The diploid number of chromosomes in the spermatogonia was as follows: Microtus pennsylvanicus 46, M. guentheri 54, Sigmodon hispidus 54, Cricetuscricetus 22, Mesocricetus auratus 44, Cricetulusgriseus 22. In all the species ...

Abstract

THE scope of this review is indicated only in a very general way by its title. The author does not confine himself to factual data on chromosome number and morphology; a considerable part of the book is devoted to developments of mainly historical interest and to theories concerned largely with...

Abstract

IN spermatogenesis haploid chromosome numbers were: Rhinolophus hipposideros Bechst. 27, Barbastella barbastellus Schr. 16, Plecotus auritus L. 16, Myotis myotis Bork. 22 [21 in summary], Miniopterus schreibersii Kuhl 23. Centric fusion was observed in chromosomal evolution. There are probably X...
