Hi, can someone who is a professional in Biology tell me if I got my answers correct? I have gotten it checked by multiple people and all of the tell me that I got questions 14 and 16 incorrect and the rest is right. But I just want to make sure.
17.Organisms such as asexually producing organisms (rotifers), organisms having similar phenotypic characters but living in different areas (Elephants of India and SriLanka), etc, are some examples that do not obey biological species concept. They fall under morphological species concept or ecological species or phylogenetic species.
18.Biological species concept was coined by Ernst Mayr and proposed that a species is group of individuals that can successfully interbreed and produce viable offsprings that can again interbreed among themselves or with parents. The barriers that can arise to reinforce speciation could be reproductive isolation due to disruptive selection that could involve prezygotic, such as behavioral, or post zygotic isolations such as gametic incompatibilities.
