This paper reviews statistical methods for inferring population history from mitochondrial mismatch distributions and extends them to the case of geographically structured populations. Inference is based on a geographically structured version of the coalescent algorithm that allows for temporal variation in population size, in the number of subdivisions, and in the rate of migration between subdivisions. Confidence regions are inferred under several models of population history. If the pattern… CONTINUE READING
