Video on the Definition of Species

Postby jewish_scientist » Mon Jan 08, 2018 2:26 am UTC

Someone here showed me a great Youtube video on the exact definition of species and I cannot find it now. The reason I like that one in particular is because the narrator points out that scientists use over 30 different definitions and she even details the advantages and disadvantages of a few definitions. When I search on Youtube or through Google I could only find videos talking about one or two. Does anyone have any idea what video I am talking about?

I believe you're referring to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9fOfFlMe6ek (since I've also seen that video because of the forum)

Just in case, this video may also have been linked on the forum in that same context. But that's about the history of (biological) taxonomy, so probably not what you're asking for.

By the way, that video is mostly just about animal species. DIfferentiating species in other kingdoms can get even more complicated. For instance, individual plants in some genera such as Mentha (mint) are nearly all hybrids, and have been for quite a while.

Also The Brain Scoop is a fantastic channel you should keep watching.

That is the exact video I am thinking of. Thanks for finding it. It is just so annoying when you lose track of something like that and then you want to watch it again. I made sure to favorite it this time.
