Fine-grained recognition of plants from images
TLDR
The results suggest that recognition of segmented leaves is practically a solved problem, when high volumes of training data are available and the generality and higher capacity of state-of-the-art CNNs makes them suitable for plant recognition “in the wild” where the views on plant organs or plants vary significantly and the difficulty is increased by occlusions and background clutter.

LOGIC AND MEMORY IN LINNAEUS'S SYSTEM OF TAXONOMY.
TLDR
The principles on which Linnaeus based his taxonomy are shown to be, at least in intention, primarily Aristotelian; it is suggested that the principles of Logical Division may still be a powerful source of unwarranted bias in modern classifications. Expand
The Genus in Evolutionary Taxonomy

TLDR
The pronouncement quoted above, which means that the groups of individuals which form the species are descended from ancestors that owed their origin to an act of creation, derives its historic importance from the part it played in the debates on the theory of evolution. Expand
