It is widely held that species are special; there is even a branch of 
evolutionary study, "speciation", devoted to their origin. I happen to 
agree with that proposition, but certainly not everyone does. 
Nevertheless, I'm not aware of similar fields of "generication", 
"varietization", and "familiation", and "ordination" is used in several 
very different senses.
