Reports on an allozyme study of Rhabdomys pumilio undertaken in different regions of southern Africa to descriptionbe the population genetic structure of this species. The applicability of the isolation by distance model (Wright 1943) and the niche- width variation hypothesis (Van Valen 1965) and behavioural parameters to the population genetic structure of R. pumilio was investigated. Illustrates with maps, tables, a graph and a diagram.
