Wild mice presumably colonized western Europe over the last 10,000 years, the Americas during post-Columbian times, and Australia over the last 200 years (for a review, see Klein 1975). The colonization probably occurred gradually, hand in hand with the spread of humans through the world. The migration patterns that established the present-day distribution of wild mice are conceivably still reflected in the distribution of alleles and in the allelic frequencies of different mouse populations. Tracing these patterns may be useful, not only for the understanding of the population biology of the mouse, but also for tracina the main migration routes of early humans in Eurasia.
