Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 8.8 - 18.1, mean 12.2 (based on 124 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5001   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00363 (0.00183 - 0.00721), b=3.13 (2.95 - 3.31), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
