About this book

Language: English

A number of mammalian species occurring in the Indian subcontinent have been studied for their chromosomes during the past 3-4 decades. However, a systematic compilation of accumulated information in the form of a compendium for researchers was yet to be published. This work is an attempt to compile the karyotype number in the different mammals studied up to date. In the present paper, chromosome numbers of 47 species of Carnivora and 37 species of Chiroptera have been reported from various literature sources and/or unpublished data. Species are arranged alphabetically under their respective families.
