Climate change and marine turtles
Marine turtles occupy a wide range of terrestrial and marine habitats, and many aspects of their life history have been demonstrated to be closely tied to climatic variables such as ambient…
Investigating the potential impacts of climate change on a marine turtle population
The lack of a demonstrable increase in AT in North Carolina in recent decades coupled with primary sex ratios that are not highly biased means that the male offspring from North Carolina could play an increasingly important role in the future viability of the loggerhead sea turtle in the Western Atlantic.

High levels of fidelity and the relatively discrete nature of the home ranges demonstrate that protection of key migratory pathways, foraging and over-wintering sites can serve as an important tool for the future conservation of marine turtles.
Marine renewable energy: potential benefits to biodiversity? An urgent call for research
Summary 1. The evidence for anthropogenically induced climate change is overwhelming with the production of greenhouse gases from burning fossil fuels being a key driver. In response, many…
Satellite tracking of sea turtles: Where have we been and where do we go next?
A comprehensive review of over 130 scientific papers on the use of satellite tracking for the fundamental and applied study of marine turtles shows how satellite tracking has changed over time as well as outlining biases in spatial, species and life- stage coverage.
Phenotypically Linked Dichotomy in Sea Turtle Foraging Requires Multiple Conservation Approaches
Satellite Tracking and Analysis Tool (STAT): an integrated system for archiving, analyzing and mapping animal tracking data
It is hoped that STAT will act as a catalytic foundation, fostering collaboration among users of satellite telemetry, and ensuring maximum value from these studies.

Once more detailed aspects of Argos tracking data are considered, such as the speed of travel or small-scale movements, then location accuracy is likely to become a much more important issue.
Estimating the number of green and loggerhead turtles nesting annually in the Mediterranean
It is estimated that there are 2,280–2,787 logger-head and 339–360 green turtles nesting annually at these sites in the Mediterranean, which highlights the Critically Endangered status of this population of green turtles.
