Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Intertidal (Ref. 31184), found on the wave-battered rocky shores (Ref. 5298). May remain out of water under rocks and seaweeds (Ref. 31184). Omnivorous; feeds mainly on copepods and ostracods as juveniles and shift to diet of algae as adults (Ref. 94105). Breathe air when out of water (Ref. 31184). Juveniles in small tide pools (Ref. 41018). Oviparous (Ref. 205). Eggs are demersal and adhesive (Ref. 205). Territories protected by males include depressions, crevices or piddock holes (Ref. 5981).

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 1.0000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00813 (0.00366 - 0.01807), b=3.02 (2.83 - 3.21), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-BS (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.2   ±0.1 se; Based on diet studies.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (20 of 100) .
