Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5039 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00715 (-0.15876 - 0.17307), b=3.09 (2.99 - 3.19), based on LWR estimates for this family-BS (Ref. 93245
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278
): 2.7 ±0.2 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278
