Abstract

The chromosomes of goitered gazelle, Gazella subgutturosa, in Turkey were karyotyped on the basis of two female specimens. Both specimens have 2n = 30 with NF = 60 and NFa = 56. All chromosomes are biarmed. The two female specimens of Turkish G. subgutturosa have a smaller diploid chromosome number compared to those of two males previously reported. This chromosomal variation in Turkish G. subgutturosa may be important for its conservation biology.
