Species is the lowest taxonomic category which is a group of a population that can interbreed and reproduce. The organisms in the two species are least similar to each other. Genus is next higher category above the level of species which are related to each other and have fewer characters in common. The family represents groups of related genera. The class represents organisms of related orders.
