Genetic variation at two mitochondrial DNA markers (control region and cytochrome b) and 11 nuclear microsatellites was analysed in 259 chamois (Genus Rupicapra) from 16 different sampling sites located in Italy, Spain, Slovakia, and Czech Republic. A partially overlapped sample of 182 alpine chamois (Rupicapra rupicapra) was also sequenced at the exon 2 of a DRB class II MHC locus in 10 populations in the Eastern Alps. The impact of selection, demography, and management was identified using different statistical methods, including a general approach based on the nonparametric combination of the p-values obtained in several non-independent tests.
