This chapter employs the fuzzy decision tree classification technique in a series of biological based application problems. With its employment in a fuzzy environment, the results, in the form of fuzzy ‘if .. then ..’ decision rules, bring with them readability and subsequent interpretability. The two contrasting applications considered concern, the age of abalones and the lengths of torpor bouts of hibernating Greater Horseshoe bats. Emphasis is on the visual results presented, including the series of membership functions used to construct the linguistic variables representing the considered attributes and the final fuzzy decision trees constructed. Technical details presented further offer the opportunity to readers to future employ the technique in other biological applications.
