An analysis of 130 tissue specimens of the European (Capreolus capreolus) and the Siberian (C. pygargus) roe deer from nine regions of Russia and Ukraine using microsatellite loci analysis was conducted, aimed at the identification of hybrid animals. An optimized complex of 21 microsatellite loci was selected for the determination of species specificity and the search for interspecies hybrids. Hybrid animals were revealed in the Moscow and Volgograd regions. Their ratio in the total sample… 
Siberian Roe Deer (Capreolus pygargus Pallas, 1771) in Ukraine: Analysis of the Mitochondrial and Nuclear DNA
It was noted that all the analyzed mitochondrial sequences of individuals from the Samara forest are characteristic of the Siberian roe Capreolus pygargus Pallas, 1771.
On the Gene Pool of Roe Deer (Capreolus) of Eastern Europe: Analysis of the Cyt b Gene Sequence Variability
The data obtained showed that, at present, both European and Siberian roe deer inhabit this part of the range with predominance of the later: about 60% of individuals carry various Siberian haplotypes, most of which are similar to those in the populations of Capreolus pygargus from the Urals, Siberia, and the Far East.
Comparative analysis of the effectiveness of STR and SNP markers for intraspecific and interspecific differentiation of the genus Ovis
The advantages of SNP markers for intraspecific differentiation of the O. aries breeds and O. nivicola geographical groups were revealed and the areas of application of the studied types of DNA markers are discussed.
Demography and adaptation promoting evolutionary transitions in a mammalian genus that diversified during the Pleistocene.
Comparative genomics is used to assess expectations for the origin and diversification of a mammalian genus during a period of extreme environmental change and finds progressive reductions in effective population size (Ne), despite very large census sizes in modern C. capreolus populations.

Does Genotype Determine Habitat Preferences? – Studies on Forest and Field Roe Deer
A hypothesis was put forward that young roe deer choose their future habitat by observing the behaviour of adults, especially their mothers whom they accompany in the first year of their lives, and the obtained genetic resemblance for progeny can result from the field origin of their dam(s).
Pan‐European phylogeography of the European roe deer (Capreolus capreolus)
The high genetic diversity of extant roe deer is the result of their survival during the LGM probably in a large, contiguous range spanning from the Iberian Peninsula to the Caucasus Mts and in two northern refugia.


Quantitative Analysis of Genetic Parameters in Populations of European (Capreolus capreolus L.) and Siberian (Capreolus pygargus Pall.) Roe Deer with RAPD Markers
Calibration estimates of molecular evolution rate in the family Cervidae obtained based on published data and Jukes–Cantor genetic distances estimated in this study demonstrated that the Siberian roe deer has split into two subspecies, C. and C. pygargus tianschanicusSatunin in the interval between 229 and 462 years ago.
[Variability of multilocus DNA markers in populations of the Siberian (Capreolus pygargus Pall.) and European (C. capreolus L.) roe deer].
The estimates of heterozygosity and genetic distance between local populations of Cis-Ural and the Far East suggest their specific spatial organization within this geographical range and reveal features of their historical development.
Mitochondrial DNA polymorphism in populations of Siberian and European roe deer (Capreolus pygargus and C. capreolus)
Calibrations of evolutionary rates of the different domains of the control-region suggest that Siberian and European roe deer speciated about 2–3 million years ago, and haplotype diversity within species was generated during the last 150 000–370 000 years.

Characterization of microsatellite loci in caribou Rangifer tarandus, and their use in other artiodactyls
Genetic analysis of caribou populations using microsatellites will be useful in addressing a number of population issues in this species, including the amount of genetic variation within and between populations, gene flow and herd identity.
Mitochondrial DNA Polymorphism of The European Roe Deer, Capreolus Capreolus (Artiodactyla, Cervidae), from The South-West of Ukraine
The isolated subgroup of related haplotypes was revealed in the Crimea that is likely a result of the long-term geographical isolation of the Crimean roe deer populations.
Characterization of 65 bovine microsatellites
Thirty of the bovine-derived microsatellite systems gave specific and polymorphic products in sheep, adding to the number of useful markers in that species.
