Species formation is usually accompanied by chromosomal reorganization. Thus, even very closely related species frequently differ in chromosome number (polyploidy, aneuploidy, centric increase or decrease) or in gene sequence (inversions, centric shifts, translocations). The question arises whether such karyotypic changes are incidental or whether there is… CONTINUE READING
