  3. 3. Develop identification services using morphological descriptions Morphological descriptions will be edited via the scratchpad matrix editor. Results will be returned to the scratchpad instance for user access Take benefit of the tools for descriptive data developed in the CDM EDIT platform 3 of 5 Virtual Biodiversity ViBRANT What we will do in ViBRANT Identification is made directly from the standardized descriptions. One character at each step (monothetic) or several characters at the same time (polythetic) Xper 2 Free access key Dichotomous or polytomous keys. From morphological data, a tree structure has to be constructuted by hand or automatically by a Key generator Use one (monothetic) or several (polythetic) characters at each node.
