This chapter discusses patterns of genetic variation and subdivision in a wide variety of canids. The influence of demographic history and ecological and topographic barriers on levels of variation, and the effect of interspecific hybridization on the genetic composition of canid populations are discussed. Case studies on the Ethiopian wolf, African wild dog, grey wolf, African jackals, kit fox and swift fox, Island fox, Darwin's fox, Arctic fox, and red fox are reviewed, each ending with a discussion of conservation implications.

Keywords:   wild canids, genetic variation, differentiation, interspecific hybridization, conservation
