Genome sizes (nuclear DNA contents) were examined spectrophotometrically from ten individuals of each of five species of North American cyprinid fishes (minnows). The distributions of DNA values both within and between the five species were essentially continuous and normal. Differences between individuals within populations were significant and contributed to approximately 16 per cent of the total variation. Variation between individuals within species ranged from 4·7–13·5 per cent and… CONTINUE READING
