Use of higher taxonomic groups = use species?

Let me pose you a question,
Must we treat all species as unique in community ecology, or can we get the
same understanding by studying higher taxonomic groups?

My gut instinct has been to say no, species must be treated as unique,
largely based on Mayr and the species concept.

Thoughts?
