- Comparative cytogenetics of tapirs, genus tapirus (Perissodactyla, tapiridae)M L Houck
Center for Reproduction of Endangered Species, Zoological Society of San Diego, San Diego, CA 92112 0551, USA
Cytogenet Cell Genet 89:110-5. 2000..Future cytogenetic studies of tapirs from the entire range of each of the four species might provide additional insight into their evolutionary biology and aid wildlife conservation efforts aimed at these threatened mammals...

The Zoological Society of San Diego, Center for Reproduction of Endangered Species, San Diego, CA 91112 0551, USA
Cytogenet Cell Genet 93:249-52. 2001..The high-quality banded karyotypes presented here should prove useful as references in future chromosome analyses of elephant populations and in comparative cytogenetic studies with other ungulate orders...

Center for Reproduction of Endangered Species, Zoological Society of San Diego, San Diego, California 92112-0551, USA
J Zoo Wildl Med 32:130-3. 2001..Cytogenetic analyses are necessary to identify most Aotus taxa and thus should be utilized to pair chromosomally compatible animals and avoid interspecies hybridization...
