Is it possible to judge the species of an organism on the basis of one criterion? Why? What other criteria do you know?

    No, because the same criterion is specific to different species. For a more accurate and reliable definition, it is necessary to use several criteria: physiological, biochemical, environmental, and geographical.

    Physiological criterion-it is based on the similarity of life processes in individuals of each species, especially reproduction.

    The morphological criterion reflects the set of features of the external structure.

    Biochemical criterion-reflects the characteristic chemical composition of the body and metabolism.

    Genetic criterion-characterized by a certain set of chromosomes that are similar in size, shape, and composition.
