The parameter corresponds to the minimum value of the admixture coefficient

*c*such that the admixture model can be rejected with a type I error rate of 0.05 when five sequenced early modern humans (Serre*et al*. 2004) were added to the estimated number of ancestral lineages. Numbers in parentheses represent values from the study of Nordborg (1998).
