Summary This article investigates the potential of a novel technique for object classification, called Classification and Ranking Belief Simplex (CaRBS), which is based on the Dempster-Shafer theory of evidence. As such, the classification of objects and the evidence from their characteristics have a level of ignorance associated with them. Its potential is exposited in the application of the classification of European barn swallows according to their gender. The classification of biological data in the presence of ignorance about such data sets is a common problem in biology. Comparisons of the results from CaRBS with those from multivariate discriminant analysis and neural networks are made. Also shown throughout the investigation is the interpretability of the results with the utilisation of the simplex plot method of representing data
