Interchange complexes in Italian populations of Reticulitermes lucifugus Rossi (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae)
In six Italian populations of the rhinotermitid Reticulitermes lucifugus there is a diploid complement of 2n=42 with no visible sex chromosome difference between male and female reproductives. TheExpand
Geographic variation of sex-linked translocation heterozygosity in the termite Kalotermes approximatus snyder (Insecta: Isoptera)
TLDR
The geographic pattern of these rearrangements suggests that their selection accompanied the expansion of the species northward from southern Florida sometime since the last glaciation or that as they arose the new translocation types successively supplanted the ancestral types, preferentially in the east-central portion of the range.

Chromosomal Evolution of Delena cancerides
The huntsman spider Delena cancerides (Sparassidae, Walckenaer) encompasses a number of chromosomally distinct populations (karyomorphs), including forms with entirely telocentric chromosomes, andExpand
Chapter 7 The Ecology of Social Evolution in Termites
Judith Korb Department Biology I, University of Regensburg, 93040 Regensburg, Germany judith.korb@biologie.uni-regensburg.de Abstract Termites (Isoptera) belong to the classical eusocial insects andExpand
Karyology, mitochondrial DNA and the phylogeny of Australian termites
TLDR
In Kalotermitidae chromosomal repatterning has repeatedly arisen with the X0-male type possibly representing a XY-derived condition, which argues against a simple origin of termites from cockroaches. Expand
Unprecedented chromosomal diversity and behaviour modify linkage patterns and speciation potential: structural heterozygosity in an Australian spider
TLDR
The Huntsman spider Delena cancerides shows an extraordinary level of chromosomal diversity and meiotic complexity, but 14 populations form chains of chromosomes, and six of these populations show segregation behaviour which is beyond current understanding of meiotic processes. Expand
How did the platypus get its sex chromosome chain? A comparison of meiotic multiples and sex chromosomes in plants and animals
TLDR
It is concluded that the evolutionary conservation of the chain in monotremes, the structural properties of the translocated chromosomes and the highly accurate segregation at meiosis make the platypus system remarkably different from meiotic multiples in other species. Expand
Multiple sex-linked reciprocal translocations in a termite from Jamaica
TLDR
Males of the termiteIncisitermes schwarzi from Jamaica have a diploid chromosome number of 32 which is the largest reciprocal translocation complex so far described for any plant or animal species. Expand
