An ontology is a formal description of concepts and relationships that can exist for a community of human and/or machine agents. The notion of ontologies is crucial for the purpose of enabling knowledge sharing and reuse. The Handbook on Ontologies provides a comprehensive overview of the current status and future prospectives of the field of ontologies considering ontology languages, ontology engineering methods, example ontologies, infrastructures and technologies for ontologies, and how to bring this all into ontology-based infrastructures and applications that are among the best of their kind. The field of ontologies has tremendously developed and grown in the five years since the first edition of the qHandbook on Ontologiesq. Therefore, its revision includes 21 completely new chapters as well as a major re-working of 15 chapters transferred to this second edition.The second part of Theorem 1 provides an efficient visualisation of concept lattices via line diagrams, as it states that a diagram is unambiguous ... an object g has an attribute m if and only if the concept labeled by g is a subconcept of the one labeled by m. ... For example, the concept in the very middle of Fig.3 has { Frog, Reed} as extent, and {lives on land, lives in water, needs water to live} as intent.
