  annote = {Evaluating various qualitative and quantitative characters
    is involved in studying the taxonomy of geckos (for example,
    counting scales around a gecko body or counting tubercles (larger
    scales) on the back of a gecko). However, evaluating some of these
    characters is too laborious and time consuming to be done manually
    on a large number of samples. We have developed a semi-automatic
    computer tool that analyzes the images of geckos and speeds up the
    process of extracting characters.  Another function of this tool
    is to find color spots on the skin.  This is a necessary step in
    analyzing color patterns on the gecko back. However, the analyzis
    of the color patterns is not a part of the standard zoological
    practice in the field of geckos because there have not been
    supportive tools available yet.},
