Paper Abstract

The aim of this research is to create an expert system which would help with the task of identifying a biological specimen. This task is usually carried out with the aid of a set of tree-structured character descriptions called a diagnostic keg. The Dempster-Shafer theory of evidence was used to handle uncertainty associated with the date and the expertise.
