Das Chromosomenkomplement des Wildschweins (Sus scrofa)

Wild pigs from Germany have 36 chromosomes with 4 pairs of acrocentrics. This is in accordance with the findings in European wild pigs from Tennessee (McFee et al.) but differs from those in the wild pig from Japan and in the domestic pig. Intraspecific Robertsonian changes and a preferential selection of the 38-chromosome-type in the course of domestication may be responsible for these variations.
