From the article. Ring Species are a midpoint in the process of speciation. It essentially means that a species has split into several populations
I do not feel this is true. A ring species is one continuous population, which each individual able to mate with its immediate neighbor but not with a more distant neighbor. In some cases the ring may not be closed as is the case, I believe, with the earth species the herring gull.--Skynet 21:16, 15 November 2009 (UTC)
- Yes a link.simple explanation. Now I think about it some more the ring is probably never closed.--Skynet 21:19, 15 November 2009 (UTC)
Lack of evidence?

Permission to edit this page
I want to state my intentions for my edit clearly, so y'all know how to deal with it if you don't like it. I plan on adding an extra example of a ring species, Ensantina. I am not going to touch the creationist topic, because it is pretty good and I didn't research it. I have two extra citations to add. http://www.actionbioscience.org/evolution/irwin.html and https://evolution.berkeley.edu/evolibrary/article/0_0_0/devitt_02. If I bungle it, I am not offended by any kind of revert or edit or deletion. I am not a scientist, my study was journalism. I can be treated as such. Gol Sarnitt (talk) 21:16, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
