The genetic structure of Australasian green turtles (Chelonia mydas): exploring the geographical scale of genetic exchange
Ecological and genetic studies of marine turtles generally support the hypothesis of natal homing, but leave open the question of the geographical scale of genetic exchange and the capacity ofExpand

The hawksbill turtle, Eretmochelys imbricata, in Queensland : population structure within a southern Great Barrier Reef feeding ground
Hawksbill turtles, Eretmochelys imbricata, live at low density on coral reefs in the southern Great Barrier Reef. The biomass of the species on Heron Reef was estimated at 0.82 kg ha-1. This isExpand

Hatchling sex in the marine turtle Caretta caretta is determined by proportion of development at a temperature, not daily duration of exposure
Mean daily temperature in natural nests of freshwater turtles with temperature dependent sex determination is a poor predictor of hatchling sex ratios when nest temperatures fluctuate. To account forExpand

Trans-Pacific migrations of the loggerhead turtle (Caretta caretta) demonstrated with mitochondrial DNA markers.
Juvenile loggerhead turtles (Caretta caretta) have recently been documented in the vicinity of Baja California and thousands of these animals have been captured in oceanic fisheries of the NorthExpand

Geographic structure of mitochondrial and nuclear gene polymorphisms in Australian green turtle populations and male-biased gene flow.
The genetic structure of green turtle (Chelonia mydas) rookeries located around the Australian coast was assessed by (1) comparing the structure found within and among geographic regions, (2)Expand

Development and application of biochemical and haematological reference intervals to identify unhealthy green sea turtles (Chelonia mydas).
Biochemical and haematological reference intervals (RIs) have been reported for sea turtles, but their value for ante-mortem disease diagnosis may be limited due to small sample sizes and outdatedExpand

Encouraging outlook for recovery of a once severely exploited marine megaherbivore
Aim To critically review the status of the green sea turtle (Chelonia mydas) using the best available scientific studies as there is a prevailing view that this species is globally endangered and itsExpand

Vulnerability of sea turtle nesting grounds to climate change
Given the potential vulnerability of sea turtles to climate change, a growing number of studies are predicting how various climatic processes will affect their nesting grounds. However, these studiesExpand

Sun exposure, nest temperature and loggerhead turtle hatchlings: Implications for beach shading management strategies at sea turtle rookeries
Sea turtle incubation biology is tightly linked to nest thermal conditions due to the effect temperature has on hatching success, sex determination, morphology and locomotion performance. Because ofExpand
