Mining Complex Hydrobiological Data with Galois Lattices

Abstract : We used Galois lattices for mining hydrobiological data about macrophytes, i.e. macroscopic plants living in water bodies. These plants are characterized by several biological traits, that are divided into several modalities. Our aim was to cluster the plants according to their common traits and modalities and to find out the relations between the traits. Galois lattices are efficient methods for such an aim, but apply to binary data. In this article, we detail a few of the approaches we used to turn complex hydrobiological data into binary data and compare the first results obtained thanks to Galois lattices.
