Chromosome number reduction accompanied by extensive heterochromatin addition in the bat Glauconycteris beatrix (Mammalia; Chiroptera, Vespertilionidae).


The presumed ancestral karyotype of the bat family Vespertilionidae consists of 44 chromosomes with a fundamental number of autosomal arms (FNa) of 50. Previously, only two of the roughly 350 vespertilionid species have been reported with 2n lower than 26. In this paper we report the 2n = 22 karyotype of the African vespertilionid Glauconycteris beatrix… (More)
