Phylogeography of red deer (Cervus elaphus) in Europe
Local phylogeographical patterns observed in Europe to the post-glacial recolonization process, shaped by the geographical localization of refugia and barriers to gene flow, are linked to the historical processes shaping the present patterns.

There was no variation at all in the mtDNA sequences, and nuclear variability was very low, which indicates a strong founder effect in the recently established Serbian population.
Quaternary radiation and genetic structure of the red fox Vulpes vulpes in the Mediterranean Basin, as revealed by allozymes and mitochondrial DNA
The Quaternary dispersal of the red fox Vulpes vulpes in the Mediterranean area was evaluated through the study of allelic variation at 45 enzyme loci and a 375 bp fragment of the mitochondrial cytochrome b gene, suggesting low gene flow between them.
Genetic diversity in European red deer (Cervus elaphus L.): anthropogenic influences on natural populations.
Allozyme, microsatellite and mtDNA data of European red deer populations were examined as to their capability of indicating anthropogenic influences such as the keeping of animals in enclosures, selective hunting for trophies translocation of specimens to improve trophy quality and habitat fragmentation, but no unequivocal evidence on particular human activities could be obtained.
Phylogeography, population genetics and conservation of the European red deer Cervus elaphus
Although hunting has an impact on red deer gene pools, the main threat today is habitat fragmentation in human-dominated landscapes, and the resulting increase in genetic drift and inbreeding reduces variability in isolated populations and may lead to inbreeding depression.
Mitochondrial DNA variation in the European otter (Lutra lutra) and the use of spatial autocorrelation analysis in conservation.
The genetic population structure in and around a known "source" population of the otter, the Oberlausitz in eastern Germany, and a first survey of genetic variation levels in the Central European otter population suggest vital local populations can indeed serve as "sources" for the invasion of surrounding areas.
Molecular biogeography of red deer Cervus elaphus from eastern Europe: insights from mitochondrial DNA sequences

The results show that the western lineage extends far into the European east and is prominent in all eastern countries except for the Polish Carpathians, Ukraine and Russia where only eastern haplotypes occurred.
Genetic variability and differentiation in red deer (Cervus elaphus) from Scotland and England
Overall and pairwise FST values indicate considerable differentiation among the populations studied, but Dunachton and Achnacarry, two adjacent populations free from recorded introductions, showed only a little differentiation and were paired in trees based on genetic distances.
Conservation genetics of the imperilled Barbary red deer in Tunisia
The genetic data showed signs of inbreeding and reflected the bottleneck event, and the Tunisian red deer can probably be considered a single, genetically homogeneous population.
Genetic diversity and integrity of German wildcat (Felis silvestris) populations as revealed by microsatellites, allozymes, and mitochondrial DNA sequences
In microsatellites and to a somewhat lesser extent in allozymes, wildcats and domestic cats showed distinct differentiation, suggesting an only low extent of past hybridisation in certain populations.
