A common theme in biology is called taxonomy. It’s the study of animals and plants and how they are related to one another. The way we classify animals and plants is important for understanding what they are and how they are related to one another.
The issue of taxonomy has been a source of controversy for millennia because it has become increasingly easy for scientists to mix up species. It is also a way for people to compare two different species with great ease, even if they are not related. The challenge for biologists is that the idea of different species being different kinds of animals, plants, fungi, bacteria, or whatever is so complex that we can’t really pin it down for long.
Of course, this is not the first time taxonomy has been a contentious topic. One of the most well-known debates in the history of biology was the one about whether the different kinds of trees and bushes we see in the woods or the different types of birds we know are descended from the same species of bird.
It’s a complex topic that has been discussed over the years, and many of us have seen it happen before. The problem is that a lot of biologists and paleontologists agree that a lot of the species that we see on the ground are just different trees or bushes and bushes of different species. Our understanding of the plant-pathway relationship is so distorted that we can’t really say what kind of tree we’re looking at or the kind of bush we’re looking at.
Well, as we all know, trees and bushes generally have small seeds, which are a lot less likely to survive when they eventually fall on the ground. This is why the idea of a “species” as a group of trees and bushes is somewhat of a misnomer. There are lots of different kind of plants. There are even lots of different kinds of tree species. For example, there is a species of tree that grows from the seed of a different species of tree.
In a similar vein, there are different kinds of animals, the different animals have different kinds of habitats. An animal that grows from the seed of a different species of animal is a different kind of animal, but a bird that flies from the seed of a different bird is a different kind of bird.
It’s not so much variety as variations. Many different kinds of birds, and the same kinds of animals. A butterfly species differs from a butterfly that’s actually a different species of butterfly. A plant species differs from a tree species. A human species differs from a human species.
This is a common mistake made by people when they think they have a “typical” animal or plant. For example, “a lot of different kinds of birds”, is technically true, but the birds in bird-watching groups that do their best to put their bird watching in a general setting do not all tend to be of the same species. The same goes for plants, animals, humans, and other species.
The human genus is too broad. There are several different groups that all share common characteristics, such as the human being, the person, the human race, the human race, and so on. What we’re more likely to think of as a typical animal or plant is actually one species, a very small subset of which fits with the typical human experience.
The concept of “typical” is important. The real world is full of a whole range of things that are “typical.” What are these things? Well, there are mammals, fish, plants, and birds, but not all of these are the same and they tend to be very different. It’s important to think about the kinds of things that we tend to be familiar with, which brings us to variation in diversity.
