ABOUT THIS IMAGE. This image illustrates the serial founder
model of human migrations.
Each circle represents a population, from which a subset of
individuals (embedded smaller circle) moves outward to form a new
population during a migration wave out of Africa. The figure is based
on the work of DeGiorgio et al. (Explaining worldwide patterns of
human genetic variation using a coalescent-based serial founder model
of migration outward from Africa; Proceedings of the National
Academy of Sciences USA 106: 16057-16062).
