We proposed a new approach to species surrogacy that is virtually applicable to any environmental context, allowing exploiting multiple surrogate types going beyond the stagnant perspectives which rely on taxonomic relatedness. This prerogative is crucial to extend the concept of species surrogacy to ecological traits of species, thus leading to ecologically meaningful surrogates that, while representing cost-effective tools in reflecting community patterns, may contribute also to unveil underlying processes.
