Identification of North American Bee-Associated Mites

The program Visual Keyİ brings interactive specimen identification to a new level. This program combines standard features of interactive keys, such as multi-entry input and dynamic searches for the shortest path to identification, with image-based selection of characters. Using this, identification can be accomplished quickly and without any previous knowledge of the unknown organism. We are developing a key that will enable identification of more than 100 bee mite species in only 8 steps.
