Using the method of allozyme analysis, genetic variation, diversity, and population structure of Juniperus communis L. var. communis and J. communis L. var. saxatilis Pall. (= J. sibirica Burgsd. = J. nana Wild), growing on the territory of Russia, J. c. var. communis from Sweden, and J. c. var. depressa Pursh from Northern America (Alaska), was investigated. The total level of genetic variation of these varieties was found to be higher than the values obtained for the other conifers. The population of J. c. var. depressa from Alaska and J. c. var. saxatilis from Sakhalin were noticeably different from all other populations examined. Between the other samples, no substantial genetic differences were observed. These populations were characterized by weak interpopulation differentiation along with the absence of expressed geographical pattern of the allele frequency spatial distribution. The only exception was the procumbent form of common juniper from the high mountain populations of South and North Ural, which was somewhat different from the others.
