Hematological value references for free-living saffron finch (Sicalis flaveola) using a machine-learning-based classifier
- 54 Downloads
Sicalis flaveola, also known as saffron finch, has now become a species of interest to researchers and scholars in the area, due to illegal trade and the destruction of its natural habitat. Among the ways to evaluate cells, the automatic counting method through image cytometry has been highlighted. The present study aims to evaluate the image cytometry method as an alternative for use for data analysis tool.
