  • U5 refugia?

    One of our members kindly gave me a link to a recent paper; or rather 2 charts from it. One of the charts seems more interesting. Since I'm curious about my U5 maternal linaege, that is my focus.

    There are two or three hotspots for U5, undifferentiated as to sub-groups, in the southern France area. Since information regarding France is not all that common, this might be of some interest.

    Herault (Montpellier) looks like the most significant; 14.12% of samples beinng U5. Also, Corsica with 8.89%, and the Spanish Basques with 12.18%.

    The coastal area of the big bend area of the southern Frrench coast is relatively shallow, meaning that it was dry land up until the ice melted after the LGM. That probably instigated a mass movement toward points north. But it looks like many U5's decided to sttick around there in southern France. I expected a good showing for Corsica, but even so, it is lower than Sardinia with its 12.17% U5.

    addendum

    Actually, the "links" were attachments (tables). Author referred to as: Richard, 2007.

      That makes sense to me that Southern France and Spain may have been a refuge area.
