  • MANY data exist on natural and induced polyploidy in Amphibia1,2; but knowledge on the subject still remains scanty in other groups of vertebrates. Spontaneous and experimentally produced polyploidy has been studied in mouse embryos3–7. Among fishes, production of triploidy by cold treatment has been reported up to cleavage stages8. The present work has been undertaken to induce triploidy by heat and cold treatment of the eggs of the three-spined stickleback and to keep alive the triploids thus… CONTINUE READING
