What is a subspecies?



  1. 0 Votes

    The Wikipedia definition for a subspecies is, “in biological classification, is 1) a taxonomic rank subordinate to species, or 2) a taxonomic unit, a taxon in that rank (plural: subspecies).” A species must either be recognized as having no subspecies at all or two or more – but never just one. Also, “the differences between subspecies are usually less distinct than the differences between species.” Among subspecies, their characteristics have evolved as a result of isolation or geographical distribution.

    A subspecies is an individual division within a species, meaning that the members of the subspecies are individual enough that they cannot be lumped together, but they are not so distinct that they are entirely different species.
