Résumé

In the chromosomes of 12 frog species of the suborder Diplasiocoela (Amphibia, Anura), the constitutive heterochromatin and the nucleolus organizer regions (NORs) have been specifically stained. On most of the chromosomes, aside from the centric heterochromatin, telomeric and interstitial C-bands were also found. The various C-bands display a very variable reaction to alkaline pretreatment; this indicates heterogeneity in the constitutive heterochromatin. Sex chromosomes could not be identified in any of the species studied. The number and chromosomal positions of the NORs vary quite strongly between species and between families. In 4 species of the genus Rana, there were, aside from the “standard-NORs” in chromosome pair 10, between 4 and 14 extra, small NORs detectable in the smaller chromosome pairs. As possible causal mechanism of these additional small NORs the reintegration of amplified rDNA during amphibian oogenesis is suggested. Q- or G-bands could only be recognized in mitotic prophase chromosomes. The strong spiralization of metaphase chromosomes prevents the differential demonstration of Q- or G-bands in the euchromatic regions.
