The biological species concept is not applicable to prokaryotic bacterial speciesbecause they do not reproduce sexually. Since they generally have a simple structure, understanding the diversity of bacterial species is difficult.

The biological species concept defines a species as members of populations that interbreed in nature. According to this concept, organisms belong to the same species if they can interbreed to produce viable, fertile offspring. Reproductive isolation, natural selection and gene pool are applicable to one species.
Hybridisation, on contrary, occurs due to process of combining two different species of organisms to create a hybrid.
Hence, "hybridisation" is not applicable to biological species concept.
