Due to Ning (our Web hosting company) being bought recently from the ashes of Mode Media we often experience 500 connection errors. Our apologies but these errors are out of our control. Hopefully, this will improve as the new company gains experience. Regards, AU

How much genetic difference would be sufficient to call them different human species?

What I've read says that's not relevant. Unlike species don't reproduce.

I live with three felines.

They all look different and exhibit different 'personalities'

Great reference Stephen.

Do we have five human species here, based on genetic clustering? How much genetic difference would be sufficient to call them different human species? (These problems are all discussed in the Appendix of Speciation).

Curious if the author or point is if there are different species of humans.

Watch evolution of bacteria in action.
Scientists from Harvard Medical School and Technion-Israel Institute of Technology have designed a simple way to observe how bacteria move as they become impervious to drugs.
The experiments are thought to provide the first large-scale glimpse of the maneuvers of bacteria as they encounter increasingly higher doses of antibiotics and adapt to survive—and thrive—in them.

Personally, I don't think we rate the term ''special''.

Amazing how different the giraffe markings are!
