    Default What Is a Species, Anyway?

    Naturalists have been trying for centuries to catalog all of the species on Earth, and the effort remains one of the great unfinished jobs in science. So far, researchers have named about 2.3 million species, but there are millions ó perhaps even billions ó left to be discovered.

    As if this quest isnít hard enough, biologists cannot agree on what a species is. A 2021 survey found that practicing biologists used 16 different approaches to categorizing species. Any two of the scientists picked at random were overwhelmingly likely to use different ones.

    This is a softball question, answered by the most advanced progressive knowledge available to us today, a species is anything that identifies as a species.

    inaccurate by design, as incomplete on purpose by those establishing ideas life isn't self evident to govern next generations by reasonable doubt.
    Simply put a species is specific ancestral lineages that work from one DNA matching chromosomes, category of gender type each generation parenting another to the numbers either extinct or still reproducing.

    plant or animal, predatory or prey nature each generation added, body type of reproductive capability, asexual, male, female individual replacements until reproducing another generation gap adapting in space now.

    Life is as simple as dating molecular elements to universal time of arrival chromosomes are when each generation was timed apart so far native to this atmosphere with remaining replacements living. But to understand that, one must stop believing in relative time logistics used against every ancestor, evey generation from within this species itself.
    Every brain born has a lifetime conflict with ancestral displacement and intellectual social position within the population present. Why, life is a compounding connection between inception, conception, death, extinction life doesn't exceed what exists now.

    You did not read your own link. Obviously cannot afford to pay the firewall. That article clearly states a species is defined by a genome. Male/Female. You uneducated, gender confused Democrat. DUMBER than fuck. PM me your address you stupid fuck
