Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00524 - 0.01907), b=3.07 (2.90 - 3.24), based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.9   ±0.65 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Low, minimum population doubling time 4.5 - 14 years (K=0.12-0.13; tmax=99).
Prior r = 0.17, 2 SD range = 0.04 - 0.65, log(r) = -1.77, SD log(r) = 0.67, Based on: 1 M, 1 K, 1 tmax, 1 Fec records
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  High vulnerability (63 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Medium.
