Amphibian Cytogenetics and Evolution by David M. Green, Stanley K. Sessions

By David M. Green, Stanley K. Sessions

This e-book looks at a time whilst molecular cytogenetics is located to make an important effect upon evolutionary reviews, permitting difficulties of chromosomal constitution and alter to be significantly assessed. it really is an updated and accomplished survey of the cytogenetics of a massive type of animals, together with all 3 amphibian orders, with chapters authored via overseas leaders within the field.
Amphibian Cytogenetics and Evolution could be of curiosity to classical and molecular cytogeneticists, systematicists, evolutionary biologists, herpetologists, and a person utilizing amphibians in genetic research.

  • Offers the single present and complete survey of amphibian cytogenetics
  • Gives authoritative and in-depth insurance of subject matters of current interest
  • Reviews common cytogenetic topics
  • Presents new insights into evolutionary adjustments in chromosome constitution and amphibian phylogeny and relationships including: Phylogenetic research of chromosome data, Current innovations of cytogenetic analysis, Examination of all 3 amphibian orders

This moment quantity within the traditional heritage of the Crustacea sequence examines how crustaceans-the assorted physique shapes and variations of that are defined in quantity 1-make a residing within the wide variety of environments they inhabit, and the way they take advantage of foodstuff assets. The contributions within the quantity provide artificial overviews of specific existence and feeding mechanisms, and supply a clean examine crustacean existence types in the course of the technological instruments which have been utilized to contemporary crustacean examine.
