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=0.01148 (0.00708 - 0.01861), b=3.01 (2.87 - 3.15), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this species & Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.8   ±0.6 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Low, minimum population doubling time 4.5 - 14 years (tmax=18).
Prior r = 0.32, 2 SD range = 0.14 - 0.73, log(r) = -1.14, SD log(r) = 0.42, Based on: 4 tgen, 1 tmax, 1 Fec records
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  High to very high vulnerability (67 of 100) .
