    Abstract

    Seven species of the family Cercopithecidae have been studied using highresolution banding techniques. Comparative studies allowed us to identify the main chromosomal reorganizations in this group, as well as to establish the phylogenetic relationships between species. Some of the regions involved in evolutionary rearrangements correspond to human fragile sites and/or chromosomal rearrangements related to neoplasia. © 1990 Plenum Publishing Corporation.
