The geographical range of the red squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris) in Britain has decreased substantially since the introduction of the American grey squirrel (S. carolinensis). We have developed 21 novel, polymorphic microsatellite markers for S. vulgaris to enable analysis of population genetic structure in this species. All 21 markers amplify well, and are generally polymorphic in S. carolinensis, allowing a comparison of population structure of both the introduced and native squirrel species.
