About Mohamed Z. Hatim
I'm a PhD researcher in Plant Ecology and Nature conservation Group, Wageningen University, The Netherlands and an Assistant Lecturer in Faculty of Science, Tanta University, Egypt.
I'm interested in vegetation data analysis, classification and mapping. I've participated in international projects dealing with vegetation surveying and data analysis. I was a researcher in "Medicinal Plants Conservation Project" in South Sinai, granted by UNDP and GEF, and implemented by EEAA, Egypt: 2004-2007. I'm also a custodian and researcher in a global project for analyzing the world vegetation databases (sPlot), from 2012 till now.
Vegetation data analysis is one of the crucial issues we deal with in almost all researches we do in vegetation Science. One of the most common vegetation data analyses is the clustering analysis. In this article, I am going to focus on the clustering tendency issue.
