Using standard and multivariate statistic methods, an epigenetic character—foramina in fossa condyloidei inferior(FFCI)—was studied in sable populations. This character was shown to be most frequent in southeastern populations of the species (Primorye and the Baikal region) while its distribution in the remaining part of the range was polyclinal. The expression of FFCI was directly associated with coat color and longitude, and inversely associated with skull size. This trend was broken by some… CONTINUE READING
