SUMMARYThe populations of National Park «El Palmar» (Entre Rios Province, Argentina) of Sinipta dalmani are polymorphic for a pericentric inversion and a centric fusion (REMIS 1989b, 1990). The percentage of normal and abnormal (macro and micro) spermatids was asessed in order to evaluate the influence of these rearrangements on sperm formation. The pericentric inversion does not associate significantly with macrospermatid formation. On the contrary, microspermatid production and a significant… Expand
On the origin of B-chromosomes: neo XY systems and X-like supernumeraries in Orthoptera
TLDR
It is pointed out that small Bs could originate from polysomy of the smallest chromosomes, tolerated because of the few genes involved in Cylindrotettix obscurus, and the minute-B category is attributed to residua... Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that Robertsonian polymorphic grasshopper species share some properties with inversion polymorphic species of Drosophila, such as the central-marginal pattern (marginal populations are monomorphic, central populations are highly polymorphic). Expand
Chromosome polymorphisms in natural populations of the South American grasshopper Sinipta dalmani
TLDR
The results showed that the chromosome polymorphisms in S. dalmani may be associated with a significant decrease in genetic recombination, which may explain in part their maintenance in some areas of its geographical distribution. Expand
Non Random Distribution Patterns of Supernumerary Segments and B Chromosomes in Dichroplus Elongates (Orthoptera)
TLDR
The patterns of chromosome variation do not agree with the geographical distribution of the populations, and the covariation of the heterochromatic forms may act as another factor that establish limits to stochastic factors, and could be involved in the non random pattern detected in D. elongarus.

CYTOGENETIC STUDIES IN SINIPTA DALMANI STAL (ORTHOPTERA : ACRIDIDAE). IV :POSSIBLE ASSOCIATION BETWEEN CHROMOSOME SEQUENCE AND ENZYMATIC ALLELE
Three samples of Sinipta dalmani polymorphic for the M4 pericentric inversion were assayed for chromosomal variation and allozymic variation at 18 loci (9 enzymatic systems). No sig-nificantExpand
Population differentiation in the grasshopper Sinipta dalmani: body size varies in relation to karyotype and climatic conditions
TLDR
The results in S. dalmani demonstrate significant variation in body size within polymorphic populations and among geographical populations, which may be explained under a selective scenario. Expand
Comparative analysis of rDNA location in five Neotropical gomphocerine grasshopper species
TLDR
Comparison of these results with those reported previously in Palearctic gomphocerine species suggests higher resemblance of Neotropical species with the Old World species also possessing 23/24 chromosomes. Expand
Interaction among different heterocromatic variants in the grasshopper Dichroplus elongatus.
TLDR
The present results point out the importance of the interaction among heterochromatic variants in the chromosome intraspecific variation in east Argentina natural populations of the grasshopper D. elongatus. Expand
Variability of Minisatellite Loci and mtDNA in Individuals with and without B Chromosomes from Populations of the Grasshopper Dichroplus elongatus
TLDR
The combination of molecular and chromosome analysis performed in this study indicated that B chromosomes in D. elongatus is an important factor in explaining the genetic population structure at minisatellite and mitochondrial DNA levels. Expand
Latitudinal clines in the grasshopper Dichroplus elongatus: Coevolution of the A genome and B chromosomes?
TLDR
This work studied phenotype and B′s variation patterns along a latitudinal cline as well as the relationship between karyotype and body size related traits in 17 populations from East. Expand

TLDR
The results indicate that the polymorphic mutation has an effect on intrachromosomal recombination, which would have adaptive significance, in contrast with the situation of spontaneous fusion which rarely persists in the population. Expand

TLDR
Two populations of Sinipta dalmani from Entre Rios Province (Argentina) are polymorphic for a pericentric inversion in pair M4, where the inversion precludes the crossing over within its limits in the heterozygous condition and increases terminal chiasma frequency in homozygosis. Expand
