MUTATIONS

When we launched this site in 2002, we stated that "Although this species is becoming more and more popular, it is not 'à la mode' yet among breeders. Nevertheless, there are already a few mutations."

Things have changed quite a bit since then.

Breeders in Northern Europe have meanwhile found a number of interesting new mutations.

As always in genetics, the study of new mutations is very complex. We believe that one of the most competent groups doing scientific research on these new mutations is MUTAVI, Research & Advice Group.

Our site on Lineolated Parakeets in French http://membres.lycos.fr/perruchecatherindescribes quite in detail some of the new discoveries in this field.

WARNING : At present, many different terms are used to refer to these new mutations. It might be confusing. We believe that this situation will not change in the near future.

IMPORTANT REMARK : This new mutation appeared in Belgium in 1998. In 2002, we published in our sites an article written by Doctor Alain Campagne about this new Lineo mutation. Click here to read it.
This new mutation was then called : Edged. In a recent paper (May 2005), by Dirk Van den Abeele, not yet translated into English, this MUTAVI Research Advice Group member details the conclusions of his research. You may find a French translation of the original Dutch text here.
