TRANSITION BIAS: Need references

I am looking for references that discuss expected transition:transversion
ratios in mitochondrial DNA vs. nuclear DNA for recently diverged species
and for species that are distantly diverged (and in which the rapidly
evolving sites have presumably reached saturation).

I have seen the helpful recent post by Xuhua Xia, but would nonetheless
like recommended references that outline the kinds of ratios one can
expect to see in real sequence data.

Your help is appreciated.
