Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 3.6 - 3.9, mean 3.8 °C (based on 9 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00316 (0.00147 - 0.00681), b=3.09 (2.90 - 3.28), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  4.0   ±0.57 se; based on food items.
Resilienza (Ref. 120179):  Molto basso, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione più di 14 anni (Fec assumed to be <10).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate to high vulnerability (45 of 100) .
