Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Mainly intertidal, but may be found at depths as much as 100 m (Ref. 43939); typically found shallower than 50 meters (Ref. 51666). Often in bays with pebble-rock debris bottoms (Ref. 43939). Oviparous, eggs are guarded by the female parent (Ref. 58332).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5156   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00244 - 0.04107), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±0.44 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (31 of 100) .
