CYTOGENETICS OF CHILEAN FISHES: A COMMENTED DATABASE

Pedro Jara-Seguel, Gladys Lara, María Paz García, Iván Valdebenito

Resumen


A database containing data from cytogenetic studies of Chilean fish species is documented for the first time. The cytogenetic data compiled for Chilean fishes include 28 species belonging to 11 families, 9 orders and 16 genera, taking as reference 18 publications since 1972. The application of a variety of cytogenetic methods has provided information on chromosome number, karyotype morphology, genome size, and /or location of different DNA sequences. These data represent only ca. 2.7% of Chile’s fish diversity.
