Karyotype characteristics of Orthoptera katydid (Ensifera, Tettigoniidae), and remarks on their evolution at different taxonomic levels
Languages of publication
So far, only about 400 species, subspecies, and chromosome races of 15 subfamilies of Tettigoniidae have been studied karyologically, this constituting about 7% of all described species in this group. An attempt was made to establish the basic diploid chromosome numbers of Tettigoniidae and, considering chromosome number, morphology, and the sex determining mechanisms, to suggest how karyotype evolution in the particular subfamilies could have occurred.
