Abstract: Lietuvoje paprastoji voverė (Sciurus vulgaris L.) yra plačiai paplitusi spygliuočių ir lapuočių miškuose, tačiau jų populiacijos struktūra Lietuvoje nepakankamai ištirta. Panaudojant atsitiktinai padaugintos polimorfinës DNR (APPD) metodą buvo įvertinta 20 voverių surinktų iš 11 Lietuvos vietovių genetinė įvairovė. Iš dešimties atsitiktinai susintetintų pradmenų, rasti šeši produktyviausi. APPD analizės duomenys rodo, kad Lietuvos paprastosios voverės pasižymi didele genetine įvairove, o populiacija yra heterogeniška, skirtingi genotipai aptinkami įvairiuose Lietuvos vietovėse. Aptikti 63 lokusai iš kurių 55 (87,3%) buvo polimorfiniai
The red squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris L.) is widespread in Lithuania; it lives and nests in deciduous and coniferous forests. Genetic diversity of 20 Lithuanian red squirrels from 11 locations in Lithuania was examined using a random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) method. Ten random primers were used for amplification. Reproducible amplification patterns were obtained using six primers. In total, sixty-three amplification patterns were generated during analyses. Fifty-five (87.3%) of them were polymorphic. Visual examination of electrophoresis gels and analysis of banding patterns showed that the studied red squirrels are genetically quite different. Clustering analysis did not indicate any differentiation among study sites, a correlation between genetic and geographical distances was not detected either. These findings proved that the Lithuanian population of red squirrels is heterogenic. RAPD analysis revealed high-level genetic diversity within Lithuanian red squirrels
