Description
The concept of species is fundamental to taxonomists, whose work is to classify all nature of living things. The Linnaean system is the time-honored system of biological classification. However, modern scientific methods have dictated that new methods of classification be considered, especially given the issues of biodiversity loss and conservation biology. There are currently five competing species concept theories. This book presents a debate among the top phylogenetic theorists about which approach may be best. The first part of the book presents each concept. The second part presents counterpoints to each approach, and the last provides rebuttals.
