What is AbaTax?

AbaTax is a tool with which you can create automated taxonomic identification keys. It allows the incorporation of images of both the character states and the organisms to be identified. The researcher enters a small taxonomic database, including the list of taxa. AbaTax provides a dynamic identification interface that allows non-experts in the group the identification process.
