1. The diploid chromosome number in the spermatogonia ofApodemus sylvaticus andA. hebridensis is 48. 2. The sex chromosomes are unequal in size; theX is the largest chromosome in the complement, theY is the smallest. TheY chromosome is smaller inA. hebridensis than inA. sylvaticus. 3. The sex bivalent shows a uniform symmetrical configuration during meiotic… CONTINUE READING
