which of the following is a monotypic genus?
pls explain the answer.
Dear Student, Monotypic genera means, a genus that contains only one extant (living/present) member. So, Genera like Solanum, Panthera and Canis have multiple living species like S. tuberosum (potato), S. nigrum (black nightshade) etc, P. leo (Lion), P. tigris (tiger) etc. And Canis genera have wolves dogs etc.. Thus, the homotyic genus include - Homo, the only extant species is Homo sapiens. Regards
