Key is a taxonomical aid that helps in identification of plant and animal species. These keys are based on similarities and dissimilarities in characters, generally in a pair called couplet.

Each statement in a taxonomic key is referred to as a lead. For categorizing each taxonomic rank, such as family, genus, species, etc., different keys are used. It is also useful in identification of unknown organisms.

Keys are of two types- indented and bracketed keys. Indented key provides a sequence of choices between two or more statements while in bracketed key, a pair of contrasting characters are used.

The term key refers to a set of alternate characters in such a manner that helps in the identification of plants and animals by selecting and eliminating the characters according to their presence or absence in the organism. Different categories use different keys. Each statement in the key is called lead. For example key for identification of animals are as follows:

Ear wings and mammary glands are present– bat
Beak, feathers, wings are present — birds
Mammary glands, pinna. and scales are absent. Limbs and slimy skin is present – Frog

Avani Achu answered 2 weeks ago
A taxonomic key is a simple tool used to identify a specific object. A taxonomic key is one of the most useful tools available to scientists trying to identify an unknown organism. Systematists rely on keys to help identify known organisms and determine whether they have discovered a new organism entirely.Two contrasting keys are generally kept as a pair, thus leading to acceptance of once and rejection of another.
