A range of molecular markers are available for studying populations in the wild (see Table 2.5). Different types of markers will provide different sorts of information, depending, for example, on whether they are inherited biparentally or uni-parentally, or are dominant or co-dominant. In the next chapter we will start to look at how various markers can be used to characterize genetically a single population, and in so doing we will start to discuss some of the different ways in which molecular data can be analysed.
