Biological identification is an applied field of Systematic Biology that deals with the construction and usage of diagnostic keys. The two primary tools of identification are tables and dichotomous keys; a third one involving the use of computer is still at various level of development. This review aims at the state of art in identification and appraisal of the various identification aids as well as challenges associated.
