Samantha,
A dichotomous key is used to figure out the indentifcation of a given specimen. It lists basically only two characteristics to choose from at a time.–for example blue eyes or red eyes, then this will lead to another set of two choices or the final identity of the specimen.—its scientific name (genus and species and possible subspecies).
