Chromosome studies in the superfamily Bovoidea

  • D. H. Wurster
  • K. Benirschke
Article

Abstract

The chromosome morphology of about 50 species of Bovoidea has now been investigated. Although the diploid number varies from 30 to 60 among these species, the fundamental number (NF) varies only (with but three exceptions) from 58 to 62. This indicates an almost exclusive use of the Robertsonian fusion mechanism of karyotype evolution in this group of species which represent 30 different genera. All known cytogenetic information on the Bovoidea has been summarized and a complete bibliography is presented for each species. Karyotypes and data on a number of previously unstudied species are presented.
