BLOOD PROFILES FOR A WILD POPULATION OF GREEN TURTLES (CHELONIA MYDAS) IN THE SOUTHERN BAHAMAS: SIZE-SPECIFIC AND SEX-SPECIFIC RELATIONSHIPS
Blood biochemical profiles and packed cell volumes were determined for 100 juvenile green turtles, Chelonia mydas, from a wild population in the southern Bahamas. There was a significant correlationExpand
