Nemisys: An Expert-System for Nematode Identification
The purpose of this paper is severalfold. We wish to give some sense of what an expert system is and how one can be used in the process of identification of plant-parasitic nematodes. That is, what are some of the problems with current identification aids, and how can expert system technology assist in overcoming these limitations?
