PANKEY, programs for identification
PANKEY is a package of programs that provide specialized tools for problems of diagnosis or identification in biology and medicine. Programs are included for processing taxonomic data that are suitable to use when preparing monographs, handbooks, floras or faunas, in which species, diseases or other taxa are described and identified. There are also an expert interactive program for specimen identification (on-line diagnosis) with images, conversion routines that prepare data for numerical taxonomy (clustering and cladistics), and a data editor designed to work with taxonomic data. Includes a 160+ page user manual.
