Evaluation of a correlation between different coefficients for mutual similarity of objects used in numerical taxonomy

, : Evaluation of a correlation between different coefficients for mutual similarity of objects used in numerical taxonomy. Mikrobiologiya 56(2): 303-308

Different methods are analysed for calculating the coefficients of mutal similarity of objects used in numerical taxonomy in the classification of microorganisms. Correlations are established between such coefficients most often used in the literature, in particular, between the coefficient of taxonomic distance and the association coefficients. Possible limits within which the coefficients change are determined. The proposed equations allow one to calculate coefficients from the one calculated before without using the initial mass data (descriptors). The relationships between these coefficients can be used for comparative estimation of results in studies conducted with the application of different coeffients in numerical analysis of the same objects.
