Little is known about the possible influence that past glacial events have had on the phylogeography and population structure of avian predators in the Arctic and sub‐Arctic. In this study, we use microsatellite and mitochondrial control region DNA variation to investigate the population genetic structure of gyrfalcons (Falco rusticolus) throughout a large portion of their circumpolar distribution. In most locations sampled, the mtDNA data revealed little geographic structure; however, five out… Expand
