Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 3.5 - 9.9, mean 7.2 °C (based on 79 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00316 (0.00148 - 0.00675), b=3.09 (2.90 - 3.28), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Niveau trophique (Ref. 69278):  4.0   ±0.4 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Résilience (Ref. 120179):  Très faible, temps minimum de doublement de population supérieur à 14 ans (Fec assumed to be <10).
Vulnérabilité (Ref. 59153):  Moderate to high vulnerability (50 of 100) .
