Decision-support systems benefit from hidden patterns extracted from digital information. In the specific domain of gastropod characterization, morphometrical measurements support biologists in the identification of land snail specimens. Although snails can be easily identified by their excretory and reproductive systems, the after-death mollusk body is commonly inaccessible because of either soft material deterioration or fossilization. This study aims at characterizing Brazilian land snails… Expand

Genetic and morphometric rediscovery of an extinct land snail on oceanic islands
This study documents that a species of the endemic genus Hirasea of the oceanic Ogasawara Islands, which was formerly believed to have become extinct, still survives, on the basis of combined surveys involving molecular phylogenetics and morphometrics. Expand
Estudo morfométrico da concha de Lymnaea columella say, 1817 (Mollusca, Gastropoda, Pulmonata)
The results revealed that only hardness of water was associated with the robustness of the shells, and the snail populations of different areas were similar, showing constant proportions, but they diverged in their absolute dimensions. Expand
Species concepts and species delimitation.
A unified species concept can be achieved by treating existence as a separately evolving metapopulation lineage as the only necessary property of species and the former secondary species criteria as different lines of evidence relevant to assessing lineage separation. Expand
Overlooked but not forgotten: the first new extant species of Hawaiian land snail described in 60 years, Auriculellagagneorum sp. nov. (Achatinellidae, Auriculellinae)
A small, previously undescribed species of Auriculella is discovered in Oahu’s Waianae Mountains that is conchologically similar to the three members of the A.perpusilla group all of which are endemic to the Koolau Mountain Range, but sequence data demonstrate that the perpusillas group is not monophyletic.

Ranking to Learn and Learning to Rank: On the Role of Ranking in Pattern Recognition Applications
Variable ranking has emerged as an active and growing research area and it is now beginning to be applied to many new problems, especially in real-time systems which improve the robustness of the system that deals with the high variability of the image streams that change over time. Expand
Data Mining: The Textbook
This textbook explores the different aspects of data mining from the fundamentals to the complex data types and their applications, capturing the wide diversity of problem domains for data miningExpand
Efficient similarity search and classification via rank aggregation
This work proposes a novel approach to performing efficient similarity search and classification in high dimensional data and proves that with high probability, it produces a result that is a (1 + ε) factor approximation to the Euclidean nearest neighbor. Expand
Searching in metric spaces
A unified view of all the known proposals to organize metric spaces, so as to be able to understand them under a common framework, and presents a quantitative definition of the elusive concept of "intrinsic dimensionality". Expand
