Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 12.7 - 22.9, mean 20.9 (based on 34 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.7500   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00912 (0.00453 - 0.01836), b=3.09 (2.92 - 3.26), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.2 se; Based on diet studies.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (tm=2.5; tmax=8).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (33 of 100) .
