Give examples for eurythermal and stenothermal organisms.
Eurythermal organisms are organisms that can function at a wide range of different body temperatures.For example, a goldfish can function with a body temperature ranging from 5 to 30 degrees C.
Stenothemal organisms are species or living organism only capable of living or surviving within a narrow temperature range.
Eurythermal organisms are those which can tolerate and thrive in wide range of temperatures.
Examples for Eurythermal organisms: cat, dog, tiger, red algae(Gracilaria verrucosa),golden brown algae, angiosperms sea grass.
Stenothermal organisms are those which are restricted to narrow range of temperatures only. Two types of stenothermal organisms:
1. Thermophilic : which can thrive at higher teperatures only (more than 20 degree celcius)
2.Cryophilic: which can thrive at lower temperature only(as low as 0 degree c)
Examples: coral reefs, some insects, and most reptiles(thermophilic). some species of seals, arctic crustaceans and salmon(cryophilic)
