The term 'genus' is used in biology and refers to a group of related species. The species within a single genus are typically similar and can interbreed, while those of different genera generally belong to different evolutionary lineages.

Taxonomists classify species into many ranks, and higher up the taxonomical ranking system, the number of classes and families begin to decline drastically. In contrast, the number of genera increases. For example, for the lily family, there are only 3 classes, 17 tribes, and 77 genera.
