Spiny rats from Venezuela show an extensive karyotypic diversification (2n=24 to 2n=62) and little morphological differentiation. This study reports genetic distance, heterozygosity and polymorphism based upon 22 loci in semispecies and allospecies of the Proechimys guairae superspecies from N Central Venezuela, as compared with Proechimys urichi, a member(More)
The theory of evolution predicts that the rate of adaptation of a population is a function of the amount of genetic variation present in the population. This has been experimentally demonstrated in Drosophila populations in which genetic variability was increased either by mass hybridization of two gene pools, or by X-irradiation.--Mutator genes increase(More)
