Allozyme variation of the pygmy wood mouse Apodemus uralensis (Rodenita, Muridae) in the ural region

Allozyme variation of the pygmy wood mouse Apodemus uralensis (Rodenita, Muridae) in the ural region Variation of 17 allozyme loci was examined in 530 Apodemus uralensis individuals caught in the Ural region from 2005 to 2007.

It was demonstrated that F ST values for the samples obtained from the 1-km2 plot in different years, as well as for the samples trapped at a distance from 0.3 to 5 km during one year, could be remarkably higher than the mean value, pointing to their high, statistically significant differentiation.

Abstract

Variation of 17 allozyme loci was examined in 530 Apodemus uralensis individuals caught in the Ural region from 2005 to 2007. In the populations examined, the mean value of the genetic differentiation index F ST constituted 0.169. It was demonstrated that F ST values for the samples obtained from the 1-km2 plot in different years, as well as for the samples trapped at a distance from 0.3 to 5 km during one year, could be remarkably higher than the mean value, pointing to their high, statistically significant differentiation. It seems likely that this differentiation was caused by spatial population subdivision, associated with the mice migrations, temporal change of the population structure, and the gene drift. Population of A. uralensis from radioactively contaminated zone displayed no specificities in the allozyme set and frequencies, which could basically distinguish these animals from the other Ural populations.
