Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Vertebrae: 38 - 43. Alburnoides eichwaldii can be distinguished by having a deep body (body length exceeds the depth in four times), large eye, 8 [=8½] branched dorsal-fin rays, 12 [=12½] branched anal-fin rays, 50 scales in the lateral series, 11 scales above and 7 scales below lateral line. It differs from other congeners in Iran by a combination of non-unique characters: moderately rounded caudal fin lobes, not deeply forked caudal fin; commonly scaleless ventral keel; commonly deep head and slightly to markedly rounded snout; the tip of the mouth cleft is slightly below the level of the middle of the eye or at about the lower margin of pupil; 8½ dorsal-fin rays (rarely 7½ or 9½); (10)11-14½ branched anal-fin rays (commonly 12-13½); commonly 2.5-4.2 pharyngeal teeth; 44-56 total lateral line scales; 6-10 gill rakers; (38, 39) 40-43 total vertebrae; and the most common vertebral formulae are 21 + 21, 21 + 20 and 20 + 21 (Ref. 106248).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00759 (0.00401 - 0.01433), b=3.09 (2.93 - 3.25), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this species & (Sub)family-body (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (34 of 100) .
