Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occur in clear lagoon and seaward reefs (Ref. 9710). Benthopelagic over coral, rock and rubble (Ref. 58302). Feed mainly on benthic animals. Juveniles and adults sometimes act as cleaners (Ref. 9710). Spawning occur either in aggregations by fish in the initial color phase or in pairs, typically with the terminal male being much larger than the female.

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=0.01047 (0.00598 - 0.01832), b=3.03 (2.88 - 3.18), based on LWR estimates for species & Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.5 se; Based on diet studies.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (tm=1).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (20 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Very high.
