New Perspectives on the Pelagic Stage of Sea Turtle Development
TLDR
It is now obvious that when young cultured sea turtles are released in so-called head-starting projects, the release sites ought to be chosen with the greatest care, and it is also necessary to avoid release localities where the convergence habitat may carry heavy loads of material. Expand
Techniques for Measuring Sea Turtles
TLDR
Sea turtles are measured on foraging grounds to determine frequency of size classes of turtles present as well as to monitor growth rates, which can indicate habitat quality and physiological status. Expand
Reproduction and migrations of the Ascension Island green turtle (Chelonia mydas)
TLDR
Responses of amphibians to acid precipitation, p. 245-254, in: Acid rain fisheries. Expand
Handbook of Turtles: The Turtles of the United States, Canada, and Baja California
  • A. Carr
  • Geography, Biology
  • 30 April 1952
TLDR
The turtles of the United States, Canada, and Baja California are studied in detail in the Handbook of turtles. Expand
Rips, FADS, and Little Loggerheads
TLDR
One of my aims was to share the excitement I was feeling over things recently learned about the natural history of Chelonia -especially its long-range breeding migrations and its evident talent for high-seas path finding. Expand
The ecology and migrations of sea turtles. 7, The West Caribbean green turtle colony. Bulletin of the AMNH ; v. 162, article 1
TLDR
A unique contribution of the report is an extensive record of remigratory cycle-shifts, and tables showing composition of the nesting colonies of 1962-1972 with respect to past and future remigration-interval The ecology and migrations of sea turtles. Expand
Handbook of Turtles
Two hundred million years ago the reptiles, newly arisen from an uncommonly doughty set of amphibians, were on the verge of great adventures. They bore the mark of destiny in the shape of imperviousExpand
BEHAVIORAL RESPONSES OF NESTING SEA TURTLES TO ARTIFICIAL LIGHTING
Effects of artificial lighting on loggerhead (Caretta caretta) and green turtle (Che- lonia mydas) nesting behavior were determined experimentally at major nesting beaches: Melbourne Beach, Florida,Expand
VARIATION IN CLUTCH SIZE AND EGG SIZE IN THE GREEN TURTLE NESTING POPULATION AT TORTUGUERO, COSTA RICA
TLDR
Green turtles, Chelonia mydas, nesting at Tortuguero, Costa Rica, for a period spanning over 30 yr, and data on egg size from one nesting season are analyzed to determine sources of variation in clutch parameters. Expand
Social facilitation in green turtle siblings
TLDR
Tests made at the green turtle nesting ground at Tortuguero, Costa Rica, show that turtles hatching singly have reduced prospects of emerging from the nest, and even less chance of reaching the sea, and data from tests at Ascension Island indicate that metabolic heating raises the temperature in nests of developing green turtle eggs.
