Estimates of some properties based on empirical models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5312   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.02000 (0.00908 - 0.04406), b=3.01 (2.83 - 3.19), based on all LWR estimates for this BS (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  4.1   ±0.68 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Fec assumed to be > 10,000).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (20 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
