  abstract =     "In this paper, we compare three state-of-the-art
                 evolutionary fuzzy classifiers (EFCs) for imbalanced
                 datasets. The first EFC performs an evolutionary data
                 base learning with an embedded rule base generation.
                 The second EFC builds a hierarchical fuzzy rule-based
                 classifier (FRBC): first, a genetic programming
                 algorithm is used to learn the rule base and then a
                 post-process, which includes a genetic rule selection
                 and a membership function parameters tuning, is applied
                 to the generated FRBC. The third EFC is an extension of
                 a multi-objective evolutionary learning scheme we have
                 recently proposed: the rule base and the membership
                 function parameters of a set of FRBCs are concurrently
                 learnt by optimising the sensitivity, the specificity
                 and the complexity. By performing non-parametric
                 statistical tests, we show that, without re-balancing
                 the training set, the third EFC outperforms, in terms
                 of area under the ROC curve, the other comparison
