Figure 4

Distribution map and haplotype network for each lineage. Colors on haplotype networks correspond to colored areas on the maps to the left (a-f). Haplotype networks are not to the same scale among lineages. Each circle represents one haplotype, and colors correspond to frequencies of region of origin for the haplotype (n = number of individuals). Note the two contrasting phylogeographic patterns, with lineages A1 to A5 restricted to one or a few well-structured populations, whereas the lineages distributed across the Mediterranean Basin generally lack geographic structure, which is likely a consequence of human-mediated dispersal.
