Biologie     Fachlexikon (Englisch) (z.B. epibenthic)

Found in rather strong currents; dicotyledonous trees, extensive reed beds and semiaquatic bushes dominate the river banks, which are rocky or sandy depending on the inside or outside bank (Ref. 91771).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01622 (0.00707 - 0.03721), b=2.83 (2.65 - 3.01), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Widerstandsfähigkeit (Ref. 69278):  hoch, Verdopplung der Population dauert weniger als 15 Monate. (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
