The coypu (from the Mapudungun , koypu ), [ 2 ] [ 3 ] ( Myocastor coypus ), also known as the river rat , [ 4 ] and nutria , [ 1 ] [ 5 ] is a large, herbivorous , semiaquatic rodent and the only member of the family Myocastoridae . Originally native to subtropical and temperate South America , it has since been introduced to North America , Europe , Asia , and Africa , primarily by fur ranchers. [ 6 ] Although it is still valued for its fur in some regions, its destructive feeding and burrowing behaviors make this invasive species a pest throughout most of its range. There are two commonly used names in the English language for Myocastor coypus . The name "nutria" (or local derivatives such as "nutria- or nutra- rat") is generally used in North America and Asia; however, in Spanish -speaking countries, the word "nutria" refers to the otter .
The MECE principle , pronounced 'me see', mutually exclusive and collectively exhaustive , is a grouping principle for separating a set of items into subsets, the choice of subsets should be mutually exclusive and collectively exhaustive . [ 1 ] The MECE principle is useful in the business mapping process where the optimum arrangement of information is exhaustive and does not double count at any level of the hierarchy. Examples of MECE arrangements include categorizing people by year of birth (assuming all years are known). A non-MECE example would be categorization by nationality, because nationalities are neither mutually exclusive (some people have dual nationality) nor collectively exhaustive (some people have none).
