Spermatogenesis of the lizard Lacerta vivipara: histological studies and amino acid sequence of a protamine lacertine 1.
Histological studies during the spermatogenesis of Lacerta vivipara have shown two protamines, lacertines 1 and 2, are present in spermatozoa in April and May (Martinage et al., 1996).
Many of the celebrated instances of island evolution are reviewed and evaluated in this edited volume, including such classical cases of adaptive radiations on remote oceanic archipelagoes as Hawaiian drosophilines and lobelioids, Caribbean anoles, Galapagos finches, Polynesian snails, and Canary Islands lacertines. Other topics include overviews of genetic and population processes of large and small mammals on British continental islands and offshore rocks, of lake fish (salmonids in post-glacial north-temperate lakes and cichlids in African rift valley lakes), and of neotropical groups in relation to distinct habitat islands (plants) or hypothetical rainforest refuges (butterflies) within and around Amazonia.
