Biologia     Glossario (es. 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 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 (0.00710 - 0.03704), 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
Resilienza (Ref. 120179):  Alto, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione meno di 15 mesi (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (13 of 100) .
