Karyology of three vespertilionid bats (Chiroptera : Vespertilionidae) from Turkey
MetadataShow full item record
The karyotypes of three vespertilionid bat species from Turkey were examined. The karyotypes of Eptesicus serotinus and Eptesicus bottae were found to be identical in diploid number (2n) and fundamental number of chromosomal arms (NF) with 2n = 50, NF = 52 and NFa = 48. The karyotypes were found as 2n = 42, NF = 54, and NFa = 50 for Nyclalits nocluta. The karvological characteristics of E. bottae anatolicus and N. noctula were studied for the first time from Turkey.
