Knowledge Representation in Systematic Biology - (Hardcover)
about this item
Novel and diverse logic-based applications are becoming more available to systematists. This book provides an updated, open-minded characterization of the "boundaries of logic" in systematics, including an accessible overview of several endeavors such as Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (KRR), Open Biological and Biomedical Ontologies (OBO) and others. Chapters by leading contributors range from easy-to-read introductions, reviews and empirical studies to engaging position papers that aim to clarify the most fruitful ways forward for the logic and systematics.
