U. Goswami, S.C. Goswami

Abstract



Chromosomal aberrations in the form of an unequal heteromorphic homologous pair and a supernumerary chromosome were observed in the gonad of a copepod - Paracalanus aculeatus after being exposed to the total solar eclipse of Feb. 16, 1980. The behaviour of these chromosomes during the course of mitosis and meiosis are presented
