Two hundred and forty-five individuals of the common shrew (Sorex araneus, Insectivora, Mammalia) from 24 sampling localities situated in four different valleys of the western European Alps were genotyped for six microsatellite loci. Allelic variability ranged from 3 to 32 different alleles at a single locus and the average gene diversity over all loci was 0.69. An analysis for F and R statistics revealed weak genetic population subdivision (Fst = 0.032; Rst = 0.016). This suggests considerable gene flow and little phylogeographic structure within and between valleys. We tested whether a stepwise mutation model (SMM) better explained variation at the microsatellite loci than an infinite allele model (IAM). No trend in favor of either model was detected.
