Figure 3. Quantitative idiogram of S. spontaneum chromosomes constructed on the basis of image analysis data and aligned by centromeric
position. The three densities represent the degree of condensation observed and visually serve as areal landmarks of the chromosomes. The 45S
rDNA and 5S rDNA loci were physically mapped at the speciﬁc chromosomal regions of 3p3.1 (solid doublet circles) and 6q.1.3 (open doublet
