#Monotypic Species - Eurasian Collared Dove

The Eurasian collared dove species are distributed in Indian subcontinent, central Asia, west Asia, Africa, Europe, America and Japan. These dove species are non-migratory, but strongly dispersive. These doves are monotypic species.

A monotypic species is one that does not include subspecies or smaller, infraspecific taxa. When a species is designated as monotypic, it means that none of the organisms within the classification are divided into subspecies. Typically, members of a monotypic species classification live within close proximity to one another and share high degrees of biological similarity. Because no real distinction can be made among the population members, it is considered monotypic. Any difference among monotypic species is largely considered irrelevant and believed to occur at random, rather than as the result of genetic factors.
