What is a species? Give its main features.

Answer: Species is defined as a dynamic group of organisms, which resemble each other in all essential aspects, i.e., structure and function, and interbreed to produce fertile young ones of their own kind. The members of a species are reproductively isolated from other groups. They have descended from a common ancestor and have similar genetic material.
