What is stereomicroscopy and how can it help me in my research?

Stereomicroscopy is designed for low power observation of macroscopic samples such as whole mount specimens (e.g., embryos, larvae, insects etc) typically using light that is reflected or emitted from the sample rather than transmitted. The stereomicroscope uses two separate optical paths with two objectives and eyepieces to provide slightly different viewing angles to the left and right eyes. This arrangement allows better three dimensional appraisal of the sample being examined through it.
