Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5078   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00776 (0.00446 - 0.01352), b=3.09 (2.93 - 3.25), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this species & (Sub)family-body (Ref. 93245).
Nivel trófico (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.45 se; Based on food items.
Generation time: 4.5 ( na - na) years. Estimated as median LN(3)/K based on 1 growth studies.
Resiliencia (Ref. 120179):  Medio, población duplicada en un tiempo mínimo de 1.4-4.4 años (tm=3-4; tmax=14; Fec=1,000-4,000).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate to high vulnerability (47 of 100) .
