2. The latest and most admired style in clothes and cosmetics and behavior.
Style currently in vogue, primarily applied to clothing. Throughout history, in addition to its mainly functional purpose, clothing has been a social status symbol, conveying information about the class, rank, and wealth of the wearer. Fashions were set by the court and ruling classes until the emergence of the individualistic fashion designer, creating clothes exclusively for wealthy clients, in the 19th century. Mass production and diffusion ranges in the 20th century have made the latest designs accessible to a much wider public and fashion has played a much greater role in everyday life.
In recent times fashion has also become a vehicle for political and social statements, usually rebellious, and a means of reflecting the mood of the times. Styles have become much more diverse, and it is no longer the case that any one style of fashion predominates.

2. (Biology) Taxonomic group whose members can interbreed.
In biology, a distinguishable group of organisms that resemble each other or consist of a few distinctive types (as in polymorphism), and that can all interbreed to produce fertile offspring. Species are the lowest level in the system of biological classification.
Related species are grouped together in a genus. Within a species there are usually two or more separate populations, which may in time become distinctive enough to be designated subspecies or varieties, and could eventually give rise to new species through speciation. Around 1.4 million species have been identified so far, of which 750,000 are insects, 250,000 are plants, and 41,000 are vertebrates. In tropical regions there are roughly two species for each temperate-zone species. It is estimated that one species becomes extinct every day through habitat destruction.
