Fish from the family Labridae elicit considerable ecological interest, especially due to their complex interactions with the reef environment. Different karyoevolutionary tendencies have been identified in the subfamilies Bodianinae, Corinae and Cheilinae. Chromosomal analyses conducted in the Atlantic species Bodianus rufus (2n=48; 6m+12sm+14st+16a, FN=80), Bodianus pulchellus (2n=48; 4m+12sm+14st+18a, FN=78) and Bodianus insularis (2n=48; 4m+12sm+14st+18a, FN=78) identified Ag-NOR/18SrDNA… CONTINUE READING
