The branch of biology that involves the use of specimen A, B, C, D, E and F is ecology.
A – It is used for measuring temperature or determining the degree of hotness or coldness of an object/organ/organism
B – For measuring the amount/volume of rainfall in an ecosystem
C -To measure the length, height and width of an object/organsim
D – For collecting insects/creeping/crawling animal.
E – For finding wind direction.
F – To estimate the population of plants in an ecosystem.
B – The specimen is stationed above ground on an open space. After rainfall, the volume of water found in the glass bottle is measured with a cylinder as the volume of rainfall.
D – The net is skimmed on the water surface so as to collect the desired specimen.
