Figure 1.

Schematic tree of haplogroup L0 and the root of the human mtDNA diversity.

The tree is scaled against the maximum likelihood (ML) age estimates (in ka). Colour scheme for each clade indicates the probable geographic origin (eastern or southern Africa).

The colours indicate the geographic origin of each sample.

Figure 4.

Probabilistic distribution of founder clusters across migration times scanned at 200 years intervals from 0–80 ka, using the f1 criterion, for southern African L0 sequences (black filled line), for overall southern African mtDNA variation (grey filled line) and for L0 central African sequences considering an eastern African source (dashed line in grey).
