Reviews

“The ‘Encyclopedia of Biometrics’ is the foremost reference for anyone needing information on the subject. … This outstanding volume serves not only as a quick reference for a quick definition or explanation of a concept, but also as a guide to deeper investigations into new ways of applying computer technologies to biomedicine.” (Steven Brock, Amazon.com, July, 2015)
