What is a species and examples?

Here are examples of vertebrate species with their common name listed first: Alpaca - Vicugna pacos. Anole lizard - Anolis carolinensis. Armadillo - Dasypus novemcinctus.

Keeping this in consideration, how do you define a species?

The definition of a species as a group of interbreeding individuals cannot be easily applied to organisms that reproduce only or mainly asexually. Also, many plants, and some animals, form hybrids in nature.

What does the word species in Latin mean?

Biologists use these categories to classify organisms, usually with Latin names like Canis familiaris, or "domestic dog." In Middle English, species meant "a classification in logic," borrowed from the Latin word meaning "kind or appearance," from the root of specere, "to see."
