Wheeler and Meier is the best general introduction to the debate
[caveat - the positions presented as "phylogenetic" are not al phylogenetic]. But I would recommend this piece and the book it comes in if you can locate it:
Mayden, R. L. 1997. A hierarchy of species concepts: the denoument in
the saga of the species problem. In Species: The units of diversity,
edited by M. F. Claridge, H. A. Dawah and M. R. Wilson. London:
Chapman and Hall.
