We address the geography problem of relatively minimal Lefschetz fibrations over surfaces of nonzero genus and prove that if the fiber-genus of the fibration is positive, then 0 ≤ c1 2 ≤ 5c2 (equivalently, 0 ≤ c1 2 ≤ 10χ h holds for those symplectic 4-manifolds. A useful characterization of minimality of such symplectic 4-manifolds is also proved.
