Genetic Surveillance of Kingfisher & Bee Eater


H. K. Garg and Ashish Shrivastava

The present study deals with the complete morphometric analysis of chromosomes of two coraciiform birds - king fisher, Ceryle rudis and green bee-eater, Merops orientalis. The chromosomes were extorted from marrow-cells of previously colchicinized grown-up individuals. The chromosome tally varied between 78 to 84 in Ceryle rudis and 80 to 85 in Merops orientalis with a prominent peak at 82 in both the species. There was no distinction in size between macro- and micro- chromosomes.
