Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969 ): 17.7 - 24.3, mean 23.7 (based on 7 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805 ):  PD 50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00550 (0.00247 - 0.01222), b=3.05 (2.86 - 3.24), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic Level (Ref. 69278 ):  3.8   ±0.5 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives Resilience (Ref. 69278 ):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (K=0.18). Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Moderate to high vulnerability (50 of 100) .
