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?[edit]

According to WEIT, good evidence for ring species seems to have vaporised. Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic? Moderator 08:17, 17 July 2014 (UTC)


The reference to the CreationWiki article on ring species is a broken link. —Jagoe (talk) 11:50, 22 December 2018 (UTC)

Looks like a problem with that page as i can read other pages on the site. I've found a wayback machine copy though. Avida Dollarsher again 12:00, 22 December 2018 (UTC)

Permission to edit this page[edit]

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. and 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.
