Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 1.8 - 3.2, mean 2.5 (based on 30 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5078   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00046 (0.00020 - 0.00106), b=3.11 (2.91 - 3.31), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trofisk nivå (Ref. 69278):  4.2   ±0.7 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
