Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults inhabit rocky shores. They feed on tiny invertebrates and algae (Ref. 11482 ). Eggs are hemispherical and covered with numerous sticky threads that anchor them in the algae on the nesting sites (Ref. 240 ). Larvae are planktonic which occur primarily in shallow, nearshore waters (Ref. 94114 ).

Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00631 (0.00332 - 0.01198), b=3.05 (2.88 - 3.22), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this species & (Sub)family-body (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic Level (Ref. 69278 ):  2.8   ±0.25 se; Based on food items. Resilience (Ref. 69278 ):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.). Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
