  • a The data from Li and Sadler (1991) are for fourfold degenerate sites, the data of Hammer (1995) are for a noncoding region of the Y, the data of Whitfield et al. (1995) are from a region of noncoding DNA flanking the Sry locus, and the data of Harding et al. (1997) and Nickerson et al. (1998) include mostly introns and flanking sequence but also include exons.

  • b Nucleotide diversity values for the Y chromosome were multiplied by 4 and values for the X were multiplied by Embedded Image to be directly comparable to values from autosomes.
