Historical demographic history of P. vivax inferred from whole mt genome. A. Pairwise mismatch distributions for worldwide P. vivax. Observed distributions (columns) were compared with the expected values for populations that have undergone historical demographic expansion (lines and circles). B. Pairwise mismatch distributions for P. vivax from Myanmar. C. Pairwise mismatch distributions for vivax species from East Asia. D. Bayesian skyline plots for the same regional groups with A. Black lines represent median population estimates and grey lines denote upper and lower confidence limits (95% highest posterior density).
