I would recommend you read the primary literature on this rather than asking this forum for their opinion. Let me give you a few reasons why. First of all you often don't know the qualifictions of the people who respond. Everyone has an opinion, but not all opinions are equal. Some people think they are...antiintillectualism has been seen in this forum on occasion.
Second the primary literature will give you many more references to examine than anyone in this forum is likely to post.
A good place to start is Ott & Endler's "speciation and its consequences" also good are Wheeler and Meier "species concepts and phylogenetic theory" and finally Howard and Berlocher "endless forms". Many if not all of these may be found at your nearest university library or on the internut.
Read on.
