Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults inhabit open waters of coastal reefs (Ref. 9710). Juveniles occur in inshore areas, including estuaries (Ref. 3287). Usually in small groups (Ref. 48635).

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=0.01995 (0.01187 - 0.03353), b=2.91 (2.77 - 3.05), based on LWR estimates for species & Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  4.4   ±0.8 se; Based on diet studies.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (40 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Medium.
