    1.As these parasitic species were found in different soil types, this testifies about their high adaptivity to different environmental conditions.
    2.These parasitic species were found in different soil types. This testifies about their high adaptivity to different environmental conditions.

    Both sentences sound alright but maybe you can include 'As..., this experiment testifies' ... Same goes for the other sentence I guess!

    If some small adjustments are made the sentences can be arranged as main and subordinate clauses: thereby the arrangment of the clauses in either sentence becomes your choice, but the wording of the clauses remains unchanged.

    Their high adaptivity in different environmental conditions is clearly established as these parasitic species were found in different soil types.

    As these parasitic species were found in different soil types, their high adaptivity in different environmental conditions is clearly established.

    I am not a teacher.

    Because these parasitic species were found in different soil types, this testifies about their high adaptivity to different environmental conditions.

    Is the underlined what you want to be your main point?
