Standardized karyotype of deer mice, Peromyscus (Rodentia) Academic Article uri icon


  • A standard G-band karyotype is proposed for the genus Peromyscus. G-banded chromosomes of Peromyscus boylii glasselli (NF=56), numbered and arranged according to euchromatic lengths, serve as the standard. It is suggested that rearrangements of the standard pattern which occur in other species of Peromyscus be described using the general methods of the PARIS CONFERENCE (1971).
