These are genetic data collected from Peregrine falcons (Falco peregrinus) from three subspecies present in Alaska (F.p. pealei, n = 59; F. p. anatum, n = 26; F. p. tundrius, n = 47; F. p. anatum/tundrius?, n = 10), two subspecies from Canada (F. p. tundrius, n = 18 and F. p. anatum, n = 14), one subspecies present in Russia (F. p. pealei, n = 7), and samples from the San Juan Islands, Washington (n=15) thought to be a contact zone between F. p. anatum and the North Pacific segment of F. p. pealei. Data collected from all samples include twelve microsatellite loci and DNA sequence data from 559 base pairs of domain 1 of the mtDNA control region.
