Classifying by Computer

In studying plants in their natural surroundings, botanists are usually confronted with a very complex set of environmental interactions. To divide their data into the most meaningful groups can mean many laborious hours, unless they use a computer.

This film shows something of the machinery of computer programming and classification. It points out how useful a computer can be in suggesting what groups, or boundaries between groups, might be worth further study.

Produced in 1967.
