The aim of this article is to explore the existing data based on high-resolution phylogenetic studies of Y chromosome variation in populations from Southeastern Europe and elsewhere in Eurasia in order to evaluate the role of the region in the process of prehistoric colonization of the European continent and the structuring of modern paternal genetic pool. Even though the distribution and estimated range expansions of major paternal lineages in southeastern Europe are consistent with the typical European Y chromosome gene pool, the specific role of this region in the process of structuring European paternal genetic landscape is evident in prehistoric episodes of significant gene flow that diffused out or into the region.
