Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 0.6 - 13.8, mean 8.6 (based on 65 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 1.0002   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01122 (0.00514 - 0.02450), b=3.04 (2.87 - 3.21), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.2 se; Based on diet studies.
