Abstract

Karyograms were prepared from leucocyte cultures in the Animal Science Cytogenetics laboratory, University of Minnesota. Specimens were supplied by Forrest Lee from the Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center, U.S.F.W.S., Jamestown, North Dakota. This is the white variant of the same species as in Av-36.
