Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults inhabit slow or fast moving water of lagoons, streams and rivers, in clear or turbid conditions. Most commonly encountered in deeper sections of larger watercourses (Ref. 44894). Occur in lentic and lotic freshwater. Herbivorous species (Ref. 7300). Feed on filamentous algae. Breed between November and December when water temperatures rise to about 29°C. Sexual maturity is attained at 20-22 centimeters (Ref. 44894). Eggs are guarded and fanned by the male parent (Ref. 205).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5625   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00955 (0.00341 - 0.02672), b=3.13 (2.89 - 3.37), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (35 of 100) .
