Abstract

Grey wolf is endangered and legally protected species in Croatia. Considering declining size and isolation of grey wolf population in Croatia, its genetic variability is of great importance for their preservation as it ensures greater adaptibility to environmental changes. Part of mitochondrial DNA control region of 47 wolf samples in Croatia collected from 2007 to 2010 was sequenced and analysed. Total number of grey wolves samples sequenced in Croatia has increased from 91 to 138. No new haplotypes were found. Four haplotypes (WCRO1haplo, WCRO2haplo, WCRO3haplo and WCRO6haplo) with 11 polymorphic sites were identified. Haplotype frequencies and diversity indices remained mostly unchanged as the number of analysed sequences increased. Gene diversity is estimated at 0,7089±0,0155, and nucleotide diversity at 0,0185±0,01.
