When we wish to characterise an object, we usually do this by means of a list of properties, which may be qualitative or quantitative. For example, we can characterise individuals by their intellectual ability, blood groups or anthropometric measurements; a population can be characterised by the number of individuals of which it consists, by the gene frequencies at certain loci, or by the frequencies of certain phenotypes among the population’s members.
