Subspecies vs species

  1. Oct 29, 2013 #1
    I am trying to get a better understanding of subspecies vs species notably for humans. For example are Neanderthals a subspecies or separate species or if a new subspecies of Homo Sapiens were to emerge how would decide that there is a new subspecies
    Is there a good book that explains this in layman's terms.
