Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969 ): 24.6 - 29.3, mean 28.5 (based on 2833 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805 ):  PD 50 = 0.5234   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00490 (0.00194 - 0.01235), b=3.05 (2.83 - 3.27), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic Level (Ref. 69278 ):  4.0   ±0.6 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives Resilience (Ref. 69278 ):  Low, minimum population doubling time 4.5 - 14 years (Fec assumed to be <100).
