  1. Median values and 95% high posterior density (in parenthesis) are shown. Ne, the effective population size, is given expressed in thousands of individuals. TMRCAP, TMRCAT, and TMRCATotal are the estimated times (in thousands of years) to most recent common ancestor for haplogrup P, haplogroup T, and the total sample, respectively. The growth rate, g, is reported in 10-5 units per generation. Au-It and Au-NCE indicate the Italian and the northern/central European aurochsen, respectively.
