Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00832 (0.00371 - 0.01866), b=3.07 (2.88 - 3.26), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.8   ±0.62 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Assuming tm>1).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  High to very high vulnerability (67 of 100) .
