Abstract

A method is described for assessing the degree to which chromosome evolution via centric fusion has occurred within a taxonomic group, using a numerical index which expresses the average number of major chromosome arms per chromosome in a diploid cell. Index values thus calculated agree with a previously proposed plan of prosimian phylogeny, and substantiate some recently suggested changes in taxonomic groups of the Lemurs, based on karyotypic evidence.
