Oh. Those are not Zhivotovsky's rates, but rather John McEwan's.
He obtained the relative rates from the ASDs of the markers in
various haplotype clusters and then scaled them to match the
average rate published by Zhivotovsky et al (2004). Note that
the overall scale factor makes no difference to the relative
rates.
