Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805 ):  PD 50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00490 (0.00188 - 0.01275), b=3.10 (2.87 - 3.33), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic Level (Ref. 69278 ):  3.5   ±0.50 se; Based on food items. Resilience (Ref. 69278 ):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (). Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
