Application of a morphological species concept placed the many, widespread populations of ‘C. , 1997). On the other hand, a property of most valid species is reproductive isolation from all other populations, and formidable barriers to gene flow can exist between two populations without obvious morphological differences. Thus, the biological or reproductive species concept embraces any type of variation in ecological niche, seasonality, or reproductive behaviour that prevents two populations from exchanging genes under natural conditions (Templeton, 1989).
