We analysed variation in ten polymorphic microsatellite loci and a portion of cytochrome bgeneofmitochondrialDNAin65 samplesfromfour populationsofPeregrine Falcon(FalcoperegrinusperegrinusandF.p.brookei)breedingin Northernand SouthernItaly,NorthernSpainandtheCzechRepublicto assess genetic diversity in the poorly investigated WesternPalearctic region. Weadded to our cytochromebsequences a dataset of previously published mtDNAsequences of other populations and subspecies to outlinegeneticvariationintheregiononaworldwidebasis.RegardingmtDNAweidentified12haplotypesfromour65PeregrineFalcon samples, nine of which were new and three already known. The52% of our samples, includingallItalianandCzechspecimens,belongedtothepreviouslyidentifiedHIhaplotype,another22%ofthesamples,most of which were from Sicily,showed the new H1 haplotype, while the remaining 26% of the sample partitionedamong the other 10 haplotypes. Allelicpatterns and genetic structuring of microsatellites were similar tothoseof other European populations. Genetic differentiationin both mtDNAand microsatellites loci is almost absentand itis notpossibletodistinguishgeographical groups according to taxonomic designationatthe subspecieslevel.
