Three general methods for obtaining measures of diversity within a population and dissimilarity between populations are discussed. One is based on an intrinsic notion of dissimilarity between individuals and others make use of the concepts of entropy and discrimination. The use of a diversity measure in apportionment of diversity between and within populations is discussed.
