Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Quick, active fish found in shoals (Ref. 36900). Occurs in lakes and rivers (Ref. 104790). Found in fast flowing (Ref. 4903, 13721), sluggish (Ref. 4903) and temporary (Ref. 4903) streams. Occurs in mountain streams and along vegetated fringes of large rivers (Ref. 7248) and in rocky bottom environments (Ref. 13337).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00525 (0.00227 - 0.01215), b=3.11 (2.91 - 3.31), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±0.37 se; based on food items.
Resilienza (Ref. 120179):  Alto, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione meno di 15 mesi (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (22 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
