              The Euler/X toolkit (https://bitbucket.org/eulerx/euler-project) takes in two input taxonomies, a set of concept-to-concept articulations, and additional logic constraints to assess their logical consistency, infer the set of maximally informative relationships among the input concepts, and visualize a merge taxonomy. The basic functionality of the toolkit is shown based on a use case of aligning two alternative concept phylogenies of the weevil genus Perelleschus sec. 2001/2013. More information is available at http://taxonbytes.org/prior-work-on-concept-taxonomy-2013/
