Abstract

One hundred and one samples of muscle tissue were obtained from roe deer in the centre of the Iberian peninsula. We compared the sequences of the control region (D–loop) of the mitochondrial DNA of these samples with those obtained in previous studies. Adding the information from microsatellite markers and derived genetic parameters to study the population structure, we found a philopatric structure, with females maintaining mitochondrial haplotype diversity, while males showed a pattern of genome homogenization. The population can thus be considered panmictic. Different times of palaeohistory of the species may explain these results: glacial–interglacial stages of the Pleistocene and the reduction and recovery of populations throughout the 20th century.
