Samples of House Sparrows have been taken from endemic populations in Britain and south-western Europe, and introduced populations in Australia and New Zealand.The genetic structure of the samples has been determined at a series of loci by electrophoresis.The differentiation between the British and European material is consistent with a rate of evolution of 10−7 electrophoretically detectable amino acid substitutions per locus per year over the two thousand years since the colonisation of the… CONTINUE READING
