Abstract

Variability of the cranial properties of chromosomal races Serov, Manturovo and Petchora of the common shrew were studied. A consistent increase of scull size in the Serov race with moving from the plain to highlands and a skull size decrease from low to high latitudes was detected. Interpopulation variability among different races was shown to be comparable with interracial variability or to exceed it. This suggests microevolution at the level of local populations.
