Hear hear! Mitochondrial inheritance is extraordinarily complicated and
the literature is full of misleading dogma.

mammalian fertilization - implications for theories on human evolution.
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of
America; 93: 13859-13863.

genes: mechanisms and evolution. Proceedings of the National Academy of
Sciences, USA; 92: 11331-11338.
