inhabit prairie ponds. For example, two species of Coenagrionidae, Coenagrion resolu-tum and Enallagma boreale, hatch, develop, and emerge as adults almost synchronously. However, the species can coexist because larval E. boreale are restricted to deep, open water, while C. resolutum occurs in shallow water with emergent vegetation (Sawchyn and Gillott, 1975).

Price (1997) provided several examples of microhabitat selection that enable closely related species to coexist. In England, two species of Psocoptera, Mesopsocus immunis and M. unipunctatus, coexist on larch twigs with no readily obvious differences in their biology.
