Cytogenetic characteristics of a population of Chironomus riparius Meigen 1804 (Diptera, Chironomidae) from a polluted Po river station



Cytogenetic characteristics of a population of Chironomus riparius Meigen 1804 (Diptera, Chironomidae) from a polluted Po river station



Genetica (Dordrecht). October; 982: 161-178



A population of C. riparius from a Po river station near Moncalieri (a trace-metal polluted station) near Turin, Italy, was studied in 1994. In this population a great variability of band structure of polytene chromosomes was established as well as paracentric heterozygous inversions, deletions, deficiencies, partial breaks, diploid chromosome fragments, and changes in functional activity and appearance of heterochromatin.
