Role of Chromosomal Banding Patterns in Understanding Mammalian Evolution

Understanding and elucidating the forces affecting chromosomal evolution is not a simple task and is by no means nearing completion. A major obstacle is documenting the exact time of fixation of a new chromosomal rearrangement in a natural population. Currently, it is not possible to determine at what point in its past a chromosomal rearrangement became established in the karyotype of a species. Therefore, we can only speculate on the circumstances surrounding fixation of a rearrangement in a single population that subsequently becomes characteristic of the entire species. An even more basic example is the lack of documentation that individuals with a new chromosomal rearrangement are more fit than individuals with the primitive condition. A list of the features of chromosomal evolution that have not been observed is long enough to suggest a huge gap between theoretical and empirical studies.
