Chromosomal Evolution of Delena cancerides

Sharp, Hayley Evette


The huntsman spider Delena cancerides is known to be highly chromosomally variable, and to have reduced recombination near fusions. However, this species has previously only been interpreted with reference to the classical models of chromosomal speciation, the expectations of which it does not fit well. Broad-scale sampling of this spider has revealed extensive chromosomal diversity and complexity. Twenty one chromosomally differentiated populations (karyomorphs) of this spider have now been...[Show more]
