Karyotypes are a highly variable and complex trait that offers an opportunity to detect changes in genome organization, uncover phylogenetic history, and distinguish cryptic species. The current database contains 4,797 Coleoptera karyotypes which we have compiled from 227 publications. This website allows you to select the records that you wish to retrieve and will build a customized table of your results in a new window. You may select any of the drop down menus below and choose the subset of karyotypes you wish to retrieve. When you press the generate table button a new web page will open with the requested data.
