Table 2 Hierarchical AMOVA results of Cross River, Cameroonian and Ghanaian groups at various molecular levels.

From: Little genetic differentiation as assessed by uniparental markers in the presence of substantial language variation in peoples of the Cross River region of Nigeria

  Cross River region (n = 24) Cameroonian NWP (n = 3) Ghana (n = 5) Ibibio (n = 11) Cross River pooled groups of language speakers (n = 6) Cross River clans grouped by language (n = 6,24) Cross River clans grouped by language with 2 Igbo populations (n = 6,26) Cross River region + Ghana+ Cameroonian NWP (n = 3,32)
