Figure of Trees An African acacia tree silhouette and the Y-DNA haplogroup phylogenetic relationships that symbolically show the root of humans in Africa with their subsequent variation and flourishing in the rest of the world.
Genetically accurate Haplogroup trees are very complex. A Haplogroup tree can be presented showing the detailed branching of Haplogroup mutations hierarchically from the originator onwards, or in relation to specific big mutations and geographic regions, as in the L-M-N mitochondrial split between Africa and Asia. The branching of mutations can also be represented in relation to chronology. Thus Haplogroup trees can express sequence, region and chronology of Haplogroup branches.
