Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969 ): 7.1 - 13.2, mean 9.7 °C (based on 287 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805 ):  PD 50 = 0.5156   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00065 (0.00033 - 0.00128), b=3.15 (2.97 - 3.33), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this species & (Sub)family-body (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic level (Ref. 69278 ):  4.5   ±0.5 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives Resilience (Ref. 120179 ):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Assuming fecundity > 100). Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Very high vulnerability (80 of 100) .
