Abstract:The karyotypes of Bufo melanostictus, Rana nigromaculata and Hyla chinensis from Wenzhou have been studied. The karyotypes of three populations of Bufo melanostictus Schneider, four porlations of Rana nigromaculata and three populations of Hyla chinensis from different geopraphical regions are compared. The results demonstrate that the same species of different geographical populations have the same amount of chromosome and karyotypic formulate. Bufo melanostictus Schneider has 2n=22, NF=44 and 5+6 karyotypic formulae. Rana nigromaculata has 2n=26, NF=52 and 5+8 karyotypic formulae. Hyla chinensis has 2n=24, NF=48 and 6+6 karyotypic formulae. But some dissimilarities are found among them. First, the number and sequence of submetacentric chromosome are different among them, and the secondary contriction (SC) or satellite (Sat) are also different. It shows that the chromosomes of same species of different geographical population have diversities.
