Scientific goals

The first goal of the LIS, the methodological research in Systematics, is to provide a formal (non ambiguous) description of the structures, concepts and relations used in Systematics. Then, we have developped a formalism for the taxonomic description and for the identifcation which can be extended to phylogeny and biogeography.

The second one, the methodological research in computer science, focus on databases, knowledge learning and representation, classification sensus largoand algorythmics.

Lastly, methodological researchs are validated by informatic implementations on particular biological cases. to know more...
