A molecular-genetic analysis of the nucleotide sequences of the cytochrome b gene (1140 base pairs) of the mitochondrial DNA and 17 microsatellite loci of eight samples of roe deer from the Samara forest of Dnipropetrovsk oblast (Ukraine) was carried out. For comparison, 212 corresponding mtDNA sequences of the Siberian and European roe deer and data on the variability of microsatellite markers in 49 representatives of these species were included in the study. It was noted that all the analyzed…

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.
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.


Analysis of the variability of the control region and cytochrome b gene of mtDNA of Capreolus pygargus Pall
The variation pattern and spatial distribution of mitochondrial lines allowed us to suggest that a haplogroup that initially belongs to C. p.
Identification of European (Capreolus capreolus L.) and Siberian (C. pygargus Pall.) roe deer hybrids by microsatellite marker analysis
An analysis of 130 tissue specimens of the European and the Siberian roe deer from nine regions of Russia and Ukraine using microsatellite loci analysis was conducted, aimed at the identification of hybrid animals.
Global phylogeography of the genus Capreolus (Artiodactyla: Cervidae), a Palaearctic meso‐mammal
The roe deer is a meso-mammal having a Palaearctic distribution, with two closely related species: the European C. capreolus and the Siberian C. pygargus, and the distribution of genetic lineages and outline phylogeographical patterns are investigated.
Unexpected population genetic structure of European roe deer in Poland: an invasion of the mtDNA genome from Siberian roe deer
The population genetic structure of the European roe deer in Poland is inferred from mitochondrial (CR and cyt b) and sex‐linked markers (ZFX, SRY, DBY4 and DBY8) and it is suggested that C. pygargus could have extended its range as far west as Central Europe after last glacial maximum.
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.
