Slide 55 of 109


The next 5 slides examine the results of molecular paleontology studies using Neandertal Genetic material found in mitochondria, the organelles that generate energy for the cell.mtDNA. Two specimens from Neander, Germany were dated at 40,000 ya. A third from Croatia was also dated at 40,000 ya, and the last from the Northern Caucasus was dated at 29,000 ya.
