Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805 ):  PD 50 = 1.0000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01202 (0.01072 - 0.01348), b=3.03 (3.00 - 3.06), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this species (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic Level (Ref. 69278 ):  3.4   ±0.35 se; Based on food items. Resilience (Ref. 69278 ):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (tm=2-4; tmax=11; K=0.20). Prior r = 0.78, 2 SD range = 0.68 - 0.88, log(r) = -0.25, SD log(r) = 0.06, Based on: 1 M, 3 K, 2 tgen, records Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Moderate vulnerability (42 of 100) .
