Estimates of some properties based on models
Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969
): 2.4 - 4.6, mean 3.2 (based on 678 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.6250 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00063 (0.00028 - 0.00142), b=3.19 (3.00 - 3.38), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278
): 3.9 ±0.5 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278
