Field vs Lab Work
When we talk about magnification in biology we usually think of light or electron microscopes found in labs. Field work usually does not need this much magnification. If you are studying or identifying insects, plants, seeds or molds for ecology, horticulture, beekeeping or even farming, a much simpler method of magnification is all you need.
