    SUBSPECIES


    A Taxonomic category below a species,usa.fairly permante geographically isolated vereity


    From The Oxford Dictionary

    An example of subspecies would be the great variety within the Canis familaris (dog) species.  We have "breeds" or varieties of dogs, all of which are still within the same species.
