Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Lives in shallow water among stones and vegetation in lakes, ponds and streams (Ref. 13609). Females feed mainly on chironomid larvae, oligochaetes and amphipods while the diet of larger males consists mainly of gastropods (Ref. 13609). Breeds from April to July (Ref. 13609). Maternal mouthbrooder and juveniles are released at 8-9 mm TL (Ref. 13609).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5039   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01514 (0.00709 - 0.03231), b=2.97 (2.80 - 3.14), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.45 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (15 of 100) .
