A review of some ecological factors affecting the growth of Azolla spp.
The genus Azolla forms a group of small-leafed, floating aquatic ferns native to the tropics, subtropics, and warm temperate regions of Africa, Asia, and America. For several decades, these fernsExpand

Modelling habitat preference of an alien aquatic fern, Azolla filiculoides (Lam.), in Anzali wetland (Iran) using data-driven methods.
A crucial element in modelling habitat requirements of any alien plant species is selection of the most important predictive variables. A database consisting of measurements collected at 7 differentExpand

Application of genetic algorithm and greedy stepwise to select input variables in classification tree models for the prediction of habitat requirements of Azolla filiculoides (Lam.) in Anzali
The aim of the present study was to predict to what extent wetland characteristics can affect the habitat requirements of an exotic species, Azolla filiculoides (Lam.) in wetland. Biotic and abioticExpand

Use of support vector machines (SVMs) to predict distribution of an invasive water fern Azolla filiculoides (Lam.) in Anzali wetland, southern Caspian Sea, Iran
Support vector machines (SVMs) methods were used to predict distribution pattern of Azolla filiculoides (Lam.) which is an invasive aquatic fern at Selkeh Wildlife Refuge located in Anzali wetlandExpand

Use of fish distribution modelling for river management
We developed decision trees (J48 algorithm) to predict the distribution of the pike (Esox lucius). Based on a historical data, 75 sampling sites were considered for the pike in 7 stream basins inExpand

Application of classification trees to model the distribution pattern of a new exotic species Azolla filiculoides (Lam.) at Selkeh Wildlife Refuge, Anzali wetland, Iran
Alien species have the abilities to alter the ecosystems they invade. We used classification trees (CTs) to predict the distribution of an exotic species, Azolla filiculoides (Lam.), at SelkehExpand

Modeling habitat preferences of Caspian kutum, Rutilus frisii kutum(Kamensky, 1901) (Actinopterygii, Cypriniformes) in the Caspian Sea
Predicting and modeling of habitat preferences of fish is a very important issue for aquatic management. Classification trees (CTs) were used to predict the habitat preferences of the Caspian kutumExpand

Analyzing the occurrence of an invasive aquatic fern in wetland using data-driven and multivariate techniques
In the present study, the data-driven (classification trees and support vector machines) and multivariate techniques (principal component analysis and discriminant analysis) were applied to study theExpand

Habitat preferences of an alien macrophyte in wetland, northern Iran
Invasive macrophyte species are a major threat to ecosystems because they can change habitats and alter ecosystem function and ecosystem services, crowd out or replace native species, and damageExpand
