This species is also considered bioindicators of eurytopic
conditions by several authors because of their ability to live in a wide variety of habitats and to tolerate a wide range of environmental conditions.
aeneus is classified into the plesiopotamic EG, even though, owing to its ecological plasticity, are good candidates to be included in the eurytopic
EG, which include all generalist species with flexible behavior.
The cyclopoid copepod Mesocyclops ogimmis Onabamiro, 1957 is an eurytopic
species, with wide range distribution in the African and Asian regions (Van de Velde, 1984; Hribar and Reid, 2008).
cephalus is a cosmopolite species that flourishes in a high variety of habitats and that can be considered as a eurytopic
species complex, and could be used as a biological marker in the health levels of different ecosystems where it inhabits .
In this study, eurytopic
species Neurothemis terminata, were chosen since they were widely distributed and adapted to different environment.
quercinus (Garcia-Alix et al., 2008b), and eurytopic
taxon regarding both habitat and humidity.
Noteworthy among the small mammals from the Tesesquite local fauna were the water shrew Sorex palustris, a species of high-mountain streamside habitats today, and the desert shrew Notiosorex, a eurytopic
shrew often of dryland and scrub habitats today.
Besides, the species that survive in the eastern Baltic Sea do not represent a random subset but are the most eurytopic
and tolerant selection of taxa.
There are other ecological reasons why spiders represent a model taxon for biogeographic research: spiders are eurytopic
and thus can be collected in varying habitats encountered along spatial transects (e.g., Chatzaki et al., 2005).
phlaeas, and Polyommatus icarus were eurytopic
and found at altitudes ofup to 2000, 2200, and 2400 m above sea level, respectively.
Consultation of relevant ecological literature reveals, for example, for the recorded Coleoptera, that all 6 species are eurytopic
and showed no feeding preferences for spiders or insect remains.
Temperate species are much more eurytopic
, inhabiting broad areas including several different ecological habitats (Edmonds 1994).
