Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits various substrata such as gravel, cobbles or medium to large boulders, and green algae on substratum, in low to moderately deep (40-80 cm) running water. Habitat is characterized by cool, clear and moderate to swift running water. River bank is composed of bamboo and other trees, without aquatic vegetation. running water moderate to swift, cool and clear (Ref. 96853).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5078   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00813 (0.00274 - 0.02412), b=3.07 (2.82 - 3.31), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (35 of 100) .
