Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

In subfamily Acheilognathinae (Genera Acheilognathus and Rhodeus ), female possesses an ovipositor which is used for depositing eggs inside the bivalves. Juveniles hatch and stay in the bivalve until they can swim (Ref. 43281).

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

Female has an ovipositor which is used to deposit eggs inside bivalves. Young remain in the bivalve until they can swim (Ref. 43281).

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=0.01259 (0.00444 - 0.03571), b=3.06 (2.82 - 3.30), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.2   ±0.1 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Assuming Fec < 10,000).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (20 of 100) .
