In silico AFLPs obtained on model species vs . empirical AFLPs obtained on related non-model species. A) Comparison between numbers of peaks per profile obtained for model and non-model species. B) AFLP peak length distribution obtained in silico and empirically. Peaks were grouped by classes of 20 bp-length. Symbols ● corresponded to bacteria species, ◆ to plant species and ▲ to insect species.
