ceratodes could be classified as native, eurythermal species and could be a good bioindicator species for monitoring climate warming of mid-latitudes of the Chilean exposed coast.
Transcriptional responses to thermal acclimation in the eurythermal fish Gillichthys mirabilis (Cooper 1864).
While this species is restricted to spring-fed streams, recent research has shown it sometimes inhabits eurythermal sites away from spring outflows in the Devils River (Val Verde County, Texas) (Kollaus and Bonner, 2012), which is not in keeping with the definition of a spring-associated species.
Analysis of zooplankton communities of 16 European lakes from latitudes between 60[degrees]N and 44[degrees]N revealed the presence of 20-25 species, with 2-5 rotifers and 1-3 copepods being dominant; both cold-water species and perennial, eurythermal species contributed to the zooplankton community (Dokulil and Herzig, 2009).
It is a planktonic, cosmopolitan, euryhaline and eurythermal species commonly found in coastal and estuarine areas in climates ranging from tropical to temperate (Nakamura et a!, 1982; Homer et al., 1997; Gomez and Boicenco, 2004).
