For a replicator L in a uniparental clade, the sequence of n+1 members L0, L1, L2, . . ., Ln where L0 = L, and Lk+1 = the parent of Lk. The last member of the lineage, Ln, is the founder of the clade. This sequence of ancestors begins with the individual and moves back in time, reversing the usual sense of the word "lineage."
