Mitochondrial Eve

An unbroken mitochondrial (mt) DNA line that can *theoretically* be traced back to this point/person. (She began the mtDNA line of all present-day humans.)

mtDNA is passed on matrilineally - Mitochondrial Eve's mtDNA line has not ended between her & the peoples of the present-day.

Most common matrilineal ancestor of present-day humans, matrilineal phylogenetic tree.

Each successive generation of human females continues the mtDNA line. (Each generation is a new end of the line ... if the human race should disappear, that is.)

Thanks to all those who played along & stuck with! Enjoy your weekend! ^_^
