Larry Vardiman, Ph.D. - ... taxonomies of their progenitors. Consequently, part of the definition for species--according to evolution--is that they will not interbreed and have offspring. Animal species are often identified by distinctive characteristics such as...

Nathaniel T. Jeanson, Ph.D. - ... that reproductive compatibility is at least a part of the definition of kind. Hence, if two creatures can successfully interbreed, they're likely members of the same kind. Furthermore, this means that all the land-based biological diversity we...
