Analyses of the complete, 1,429 bp sequence of the control region (D-loop) performed on nearly 200 individuals shows that there are just three haplotypes corresponding to the three female founders (Wojcik et al. 2009). Although it is reassuring that all the female founders’ haplotypes are still hopefully present in the Lowland bison population, their frequency is very uneven: the most common haplotype has been found in 93 % of the Lowland individuals studied, the next commonest in 6 % and the least common in just 1 % (Wojcik et al.
