In biology, species is the last of the classifications in the taxonomic rank.  It is after genus.  A species is a group of organisms that can both interbreed and produce fertile offspring but cannot breed with members of another species.  Organisms in a species look the same.  Examples of species would be wolves, chickens, giraffes, etc.
