What Is A Species?

Species is the fundamental unit of biological classification. The term 'species' was first coined by the English Naturalist John Ray. The modern 'biological species concept' was given by Ernst Mayr. In this concept, species has been defined as a group of closely related organisms that are capable of interbreeding among themselves and produce viable offsprings. Species is the most specific way to describe, or differentiate a particular organism. Species are further subdivided into smaller groups
