Synopsis: What constitutes a species? If a species is a group of organisms, and if all organisms belong to one species or another, how do we determine which organisms belong to which groups? Do we base our decision on morphology, common physical traits? Do we base it on genetic makeup, common DNA? Do we focus on reproduction, the ability to interbreed?
