Abstract

The polymorphism of the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) control region sequence was examined in 30 polar foxes from Bering Island and 30 polar foxes from Mednyi Island. Seven haplotypes were revealed in polar foxes from Bering Island, and one, in polar foxes from Mednyi Island. The age of divergence of these populations (12 000 ± 6 000 years) was calculated based on a fragment of the D-loop. In Bering polar foxes, the sequence nucleotide diversity (π) was 0.003 (S.D. = 0.002), the haplotype diversity h in Bering polar foxes was 0.835 (S.D. = 0.037). The effective number of females n the Bering Island population was estimated as 105 animals.
