This e-book seems to be at a time while molecular cytogenetics is situated to make an important influence upon evolutionary stories, allowing difficulties of chromosomal constitution and alter to be severely assessed. it truly is an updated and accomplished survey of the cytogenetics of a massive classification of animals, together with all 3 amphibian orders, with chapters authored via foreign leaders within the field.
Amphibian Cytogenetics and Evolution could be of curiosity to classical and molecular cytogeneticists, systematicists, evolutionary biologists, herpetologists, and somebody utilizing amphibians in genetic research.
- Offers the one present and finished survey of amphibian cytogenetics
- Gives authoritative and in-depth assurance of subject matters of current interest
- Reviews normal cytogenetic topics
- Presents new insights into evolutionary alterations in chromosome constitution and amphibian phylogeny and relationships including: Phylogenetic research of chromosome data, Current strategies of cytogenetic analysis, Examination of all 3 amphibian orders
