Geographical distribution of mtDNA-haplogroups. Approximate geographical distribution of terminal haplogroups. Points represent sample locations, shaded areas approximate ranges of haplogroups. Numbers indicate important future sampling areas (1 = contact zone between olive and Guinea baboons in Mauretania, 2 = isolated olive baboon populations from the Sahara desert, 3 = olive baboons from the Central African Republic, Congo and north eastern DRC, 4 = contact zone between olive-hamadryas, olive-yellow and central olive baboon clades, 5 = contact zones between coastal, northern and southern yellow baboons, 6 = contact zones between Kinda, northern chacma and southern yellow baboons, 7 = baboon populations in eastern Zambia and Angola, 8 = contact zones of southern and northern chacma baboons).
