    If the time period is long, the subgenera become independent species to the point that copulation between them is infertile. إذا طال الزمن صارت السلالات أنواعًا مستقلة حتى إنه لا يخصب بينها التلافح.

    Above is my guess based on the context, but I was not able to find تلافح in any dictionary. I know that لفح is to burn (as in fire), so it should stand to reason that تلافح is to participate in mutual burning -- copulate, breed.

    Your guessing is right.

    Now that Ayed has corrected your spelling, you will probably see that لقح means to pollinate or impregnate, so the meaning is even clearer.
