REDUCING INCIDENTAL MORTALITY OF FRANCISCANA DOLPHIN PONTOPORIA BLAINVILLEI WITH ACOUSTIC WARNING DEVICES ATTACHED TO FISHING NETS
TLDR
Although pingers show promise as a management tool for this species, pinniped depredation suggests that higher pinger frequencies will be needed to avoid a “dinner bell” effect. Expand
Pan-Atlantic analysis of the overlap of a highly migratory species, the leatherback turtle, with pelagic longline fisheries
TLDR
The first pan-Atlantic analysis of spatio-temporal distribution of the leatherback turtle is performed and overlap with longline fishing effort is ascertain, suggesting that the Atlantic probably consists of two regional management units: northern and southern. Expand
Revisiting the ontogenetic shift paradigm: The case of juvenile green turtles in the SW Atlantic
TLDR
Adaptation to local conditions explains behavior better for the SW Atlantic than the abrupt and irreversible ontogenetic shift described for warmer waters. Expand
Genetic composition of green turtle feeding grounds in coastal waters of Argentina based on mitochondrial DNA
TLDR
The present results improve knowledge of the population structure and migration patterns of the Atlantic green turtle, and inform conservation measures on feeding grounds, which may be thousands of kilometers away from the nesting colonies. Expand
Young green turtles, Chelonia mydas, exposed to plastic in a frontal area of the SW Atlantic.
TLDR
Exposure of green turtles to plastic and its ingestion via debris distribution, habitat use and digestive tract examination and results indicated that there is considerable overlap of frontal accumulated plastic and core foraging areas of the animals. Expand
First Evidence of Leatherback Movement from Africa to South America
Programme Kudu, Cellule de coordination ECOFAC, BP 15115, Libreville,Gabon (E-mail: protomac_lbv@yahoo.ie ), UICN-France, Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle, 36 rue Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire, 75005Expand
A jellyfish diet for the herbivorous green turtle Chelonia mydas in the temperate SW Atlantic
TLDR
This study finds that animal matter, in particular gelatinous plankton, was consumed in large proportions compared to herbivorous food items such as terrestrial plants and macroalgae in the diet of the neritic green sea turtles. Expand
Origin and genetic diversity of leatherbacks (Dermochelys coriacea) at Argentine foraging grounds
TLDR
Findings demonstrate the connection between nesting and foraging areas in the South Atlantic and illustrate the importance of the Malvinas ecoregion to the survival of migratory marine vertebrates, such as leatherbacks. Expand
The role of Pleistocene glaciations in shaping the genetic structure of South American fur seals (Arctocephalus australis)
TLDR
The role that Pleistocene glaciations may have had in shaping the genetic structure currently found in the two southernmost breeding areas of the South American fur seal is evaluated and a pattern of phylogeographic structure with two main haplogroups corresponding to the different breeding areas is revealed. Expand
Legal and institutional tools to mitigate marine turtle bycatch: Argentina as a case study
This paper explores conservation policy pertinent to three species of marine turtles affected by fisheries, while crossing jurisdictions in their seasonal migrations through the SW Atlantic,Expand
