   Yes, when they use the phrase "ubiquist species" several times, it could
be regarded as a noun in apposition.  However, the phrase "as ubiquist" in
the abstract is clearly not a noun in apposition, and thus potentially
confusing to some.  But still no big deal.

It could be a noun in apposition.

Hi Mark,       No serious confusion for most.  However, ubiquist should
probably always be used as a noun, and they clearly used it as an adjective
when they said "as ubiquist" in the abstract, instead of "as ubiquitous".
No big deal though.                   --------------Ken
