%X Fuzzy membrane computing is a newly developed and promising research direction in the area of membrane computing that aims at exploring the complex in- teraction between membrane computing and fuzzy theory. This paper provides a comprehensive survey of theoretical developments and various applications of fuzzy membrane computing, and sketches future research lines. The theoretical develop- ments are reviewed from the aspects of uncertainty processing in P systems, fuzzifica- tion of P systems and fuzzy knowledge representation and reasoning. The applications of fuzzy membrane computing are mainly focused on fuzzy knowledge representation and fault diagnosis. An overview of different types of fuzzy P systems, differences between spiking neural P systems and fuzzy reasoning spiking neural P systems and newly obtained results on these P systems are presented.
