The genus of a surface is a topological invariant that is (roughly) the number of holes in the surface, usually denoted as g.
For example, the genus of a coffee cup or a torus is 1, whilst the genus of a sphere is 0.

  PlanetMath: genus of topological surface
The genus is a topological invariant of surfaces.
It is one of the oldest known topological invariants and, in fact, much of topology has been created in order to generalize this notion to more general situations than the topology of surfaces.

 Genus Opuntia (incl. Cylindropuntia, Grusonia, and Corynopuntia)
The genus Opuntia is quite large, yet it is still replete with hidden diversity.
The genus ranges from southern Canada to southern South America, in habitats ranging from arid desert to tropical semiarid woodlands and high mountains.
Recent genetic studies reveal that the different subgenera of this genus may be distinct enough to warrant their elevation to full genera.

 Medieval Sourcebook: Aquinas: Ente et Essentia
For the genus signifies the whole as a certain denomination determining that which is material in the thing without a determination of its proper form, whence the genus is taken from the matter, although it is not the matter.
For, the genus is not the matter, though it is taken from the matter as signifying the whole; nor is the difference the form, though it is taken from the form as signifying the whole.
We should note, though, that the genus and difference in immaterial substances are not taken in the same way as in sensible substances, for in sensible substances the genus is taken from that which is material in the thing, while the difference is taken from that which is formal in the thing.

The fl dolphin is the least known of the genus Cephalorhynchus, with almost nothing known about the biology or natural history, no records of specimens held in captivity, and almost no formal studies of the species.
It appears to be mostly typical of the genus, consuming similar prey, making similar vocalizations, and having the same inherent wariness, which helps to result in its obscurity.
Unlike many other members of the genus, which have distinctly rounded dorsal fins, the dorsal fin of this species is triangular.

However, the genus did not receive general recognition until 1947 when it was revived by E. Cheesman in the first of a series of papers in the Kew Bulletin on the classification of the bananas.
The composition of the genus Ensete is not settled definitively.

 The Genus Iris   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Rodionenko's 1961 reclassification in The Genus Iris (in Russian, Moscow, 1961) was more ambitious in that he split the genus into five genera: Iris (includes rhyzomatous irises), Xiphium (bulbous irises like Dutch and English irises), Iridodictyum (bulbous irises like reticulata), Gynandriris (just what Linnaeus called Iris sisyrinchium), and Juno (bulbous Juno irises).
In this classification, a genus may be divided into subgenera, a subgenus into sections, a section into subsections, and a subsection into series.
The rhyzomatous irises (genus Iris) could be divided into three major parts: beardless irises (subgenera Limniris and Xyridion), crested irises (subgenus Crossiris), and bearded irises (subgenus Iris).
