Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5625   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01698 (0.01024 - 0.02815), b=3.05 (2.91 - 3.19), based on LWR estimates for this species & (Sub)family-body (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.3 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Low, minimum population doubling time 4.5 - 14 years (tmax=11; K=0.28-0.38).
Prior r = 1.02, 2 SD range = 0.9 - 1.16, log(r) = 0.02, SD log(r) = 0.06, Based on: 1 K, 2 tgen, 1 tmax, records
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (34 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Very high.
