Single source samples

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review



In this chapter we consider the interpretation of single source samples. A distinction is drawn in the minds of forensic practitioners between single source and mixed samples. This distinction is unnecessary and possibly unhelpful; however it is so prevalent that we fall into line. The chapters treating single source and mixed samples are back to back to make our point.
