Biologically speaking, a species is the major subdivision of a genus or subgenus, regarded as the basic category of biological classification, composed of related individuals that resemble one another, are able to breed among themselves, but are not able to breed with members of another species.
"Breeding" implies producing fertile offspring.
Therefore by definition if these "coywolves" are fertile, then they wolves and coyotes are not separate species .
It would seem the taxonomists labeling coyotes "canus latrans" rather than "canis lupus" was biologically speaking at least, incorrect.
Actually this may be a backdoor attempt to get person-hood for monkeys ... there has been an effort to get higher primates recognized as "persons" that has been shot down multiple times. If these PETA crazies can get a court to rule that Naruto owns the copyright it sets a legal precedent that can be used as a lever to get a court to agree that the higher primates are "people".
Are all fly by wire implementations - that is no mechanical linkages between flight controls and flight control surfaces. So while there is a "fully manual mode", it's manual control of electronic input devices to electronically controlled actuators. While there are mechanical backups available for some flight control surfaces they are intended to be used in the event of a computer failure(4 redundant systems); realistically there is no way anyone is going to land a plane using the mechanical controls for rudder, trim and landing gear.
There is no way to take the electronics that ultimately control the planes' flight out of the equation in any practical sense.
Every one of those systems is controlled by a "computer" and every subsystem is vulnerable to subversion.
Think what would happen if a hacker inserted a multiplier into the code interpreting input from the flight yoke ... a 2 degree steering adjustment at the yoke becomes a 95 degree hard bank ... or a hack that flips the yokes' orientation ... pulling the yoke back causes the plane to dive ... turning the wheel right banks left ... or better yet a simple hack that just tells the fuel system that the throttle is set to idle ...
It would be virtually impossible to keep a modern airliner under control if the basic control systems were subverted.
I know all this and I still fly ... it's still the safest way to travel.
