1. Morphological
2. Biological

Morphological

focuses on the structure of the organism. Advantage is that it is easy to catgorize and is most widely used. a Disadvantage is that there could be too much variation

Biological

Defines species based on whether they can produce fertile offspring. Advantage is that it is widely used, disadvanatge because some organisms live too far apart they cannot be compared
