Are Species and Populations the Same Thing?

Answer- No. The phrases population and species are distinct. Ecology’s two basic degrees of classification of life are population and species.

A population is a group of creatures of the same species living in a specific area. The overall number of organisms varies with time, birth, mortality, environmental variables, and population dispersion. Population aids species interbreeding. Elephants, salmon, king penguins, etc.

The word species refers to a single person or a small group of creatures that share similar characteristics and may effectively reproduce. Any live entity or group of living things can be a species. Elephants, Tursiops truncates dolphins, Felis catus cat, Quercus douglasii blue oak.
