shrooms: Can You Eat This Mushroom?

Description Format Source

Description

Subset of data from a study on edibility of mushrroms. The individual mushrooms come from 23 species of gilled mushrooms in the Agaricus and Lepiota Family. The aim is to come up with a rule for predicting, on the basis of an individual mushroom's characteristics, whether or not the mushroom is edible. Remaining data is held back for evaluation of proposed rules.
