    Default Chromosome Atlas Fish, Amphibians, Reptiles, and Birds (3-Volume Set)

    Chromosome Atlas: Fish, Amphibians, Reptiles, and Birds (Volume 1)

    Edited by Maria Luiza Bešak, Willy Bešak, Franklin L. Roberts, Robert N. Shoffner, E. Peter Volpe; Coordinating Editors: Kurt Benirschke, T. C. Hsu



    Pages: 210
    Publisher: ---
    Edition: 1st ed., 1971
    Language: English
    ISBN: 978-3-662-37457-3

    Description

    Since the publication of the first Atlas of Mammalian Chromosomes in 1967 the
    continuous compilation of mammalian karyotypes has become a useful instrument in
    cytologic and taxonomic studies. Technical advances in preparing mitotic cells from
    nonmammalian vertebrates have since allowed a better comparison of taxa in fishes,
    amphibia, reptiles, and birds. In these fields the literature is also widely scattered; and
    it has become difficult to survey such information, published as well as unpublished,
    by nonspecialists. These were among the reasons for the new endeavor of compiling a
    chromosome atlas for nonmammalian vertebrates.
    An annual publication is planned with presentation of between 10 and 15
    karyotypes from each class. In this first volume, 52 species are presented. For
    convenience in future colation, the numbering system employs class abbreviations,
    viz., P-Pisces, Am-Amphibia, R-Reptilia, and Av-Aves. Within each class, the numbers
    are necessarily consecutive.
    In general the karyotypes are laid out following the format employed in An Atlas of
    Mammalian Chromosomes. Whenever possible both sexes are represented, even though
    sexual chromosomal dimorphism is not (currently) evident. When the sex chromosomes
    are known, they are so indicated by conventional nomenclature (XX/XY or
    ZW/ZZ). In the karyotypes of birds the so-called microchromosomes are grouped
    together at the end without an attempt at complete enumeration, which is presently
    impossible. They are usually considered as acrocentrics, but a few are distinctly
    biarmed. The modal number is quoted as the most likely in these species, recognizing
    the difficulty in obtaining accurate counts of the microchromosomes.
    Whenever possible, the number of specimens studied and their origin are given.
    Very old references are usually avoided. New references will again be furnished with
    each new Atlas. In Pisces, the nomenclature of Common and Scientific Names of
    Fishes, American Fisheries Society Publication, 1970 (3rd ed.) is employed.
    The karyotypes displayed here come primarily from the files of the editors and
    reflect what has been available and of interest to them. In the future volumes a wider
    representation of species will be presented. It is hoped that investigators with
    karyotypes of animals belonging to these classes will contact individual editors and
    contribute their valuable material for the inclusion in the future volumes. Proper
    acknowledgment will be made in individual cases.
