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=0.01230 (0.00726 - 0.02086), b=3.02 (2.86 - 3.18), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this species & (Sub)family-body (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  4.0   ±0.67 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Very Low, minimum population doubling time more than 14 years (K=0.07; tm=20; tmax=40).
Prior r = 0.17, 2 SD range = 0.05 - 0.62, log(r) = -1.77, SD log(r) = 0.65, Based on: 1 K, 1 tgen, 1 tmax, 1 Fec records
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  High vulnerability (64 of 100) .
