Phylogenetic distribution of mtDNA haplotypes. A phylogeny based on nuclear (nDNA) genetic distances is shown. Branches are color coded, and groups are labeled, according to their 1KGP continental population groups. Individuals’ mtDNA haplotypes are superimposed on the nDNA tree. Subtrees are expanded to show examples of very closely related pairs of individuals (i.e., sister taxa) that have divergent mtDNA haplotypes
