The primitive termite Kalotermes approximatus carries a number of reciprocal translocations (segmental interchanges) that are linked to the sex-determining mechanism in such a way that males are permanent structural heterozygotes, forming long chains or rings of chromosomes in meiosis, while females are structural homozygotes, forming only bivalents. A survey of male meiosis from collections covering nearly the whole species range in the southeastern United States reveals considerable variation… CONTINUE READING
