What's of interest

Metapopulation

A group of subpopulations in which individual subpopulations occasionally go extinct and are later re-colonised from other ones.

Microsatellite markers

Very variable bits of DNA that are thought to mutate at a fixed rate without affecting individual ‘fitness’ or reproduction. They can be used to look at how related a group of individuals are.
