Abstract

GOLDSCHMIDT, Beatriz; NOGUEIRA, Denise M.; MONSORES, Denise W.  and  SOUZA, Lúcia M.. Chromosome study in two Aratinga species (A. guarouba and A. acuticaudata) (Psittaciformes). Braz. J. Genet. [online]. 1997, vol.20, n.4 ISSN 1678-4502.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-84551997000400017.

The karyotypes of two species of Psittacidae of the genus Aratinga, Aratinga guarouba and A. acuticaudata were studied for the first time. The metaphases were obtained using a short term culture of feather pulp. These karyotypes are compared with others of the genus and their karyological relationships in the Psittaciformes are discussed
