Natal homing in juvenile loggerhead turtles (Caretta caretta)
Juvenile loggerhead turtles (Caretta caretta) from West Atlantic nesting beaches occupy oceanic (pelagic) habitats in the eastern Atlantic and Mediterranean, whereas larger juvenile turtles occupyExpand

Population stock structure of leatherback turtles (Dermochelyscoriacea) in the Atlantic revealed using mtDNA and microsatellite markers
This study presents a comprehensive genetic analysis of stock structure for leatherback turtles (Dermochelyscoriacea), combining 17 microsatellite loci and 763 bp of the mtDNA control region.Expand

Fecundity, egg deposition, and mortality of market squid (Lolilgo opalescens)
Loligo opalescens live less than a year and die after a short spawning period before all oocytes are expended. Potential fecundity (EP), the standing stock of all oocytes just before the onset ofExpand

Expanded mitochondrial control region sequences increase resolution of stock structure among North Atlantic loggerhead turtle rookeries
The southeastern USA hosts the largest nesting concentration of loggerhead turtles Caretta caretta in the Atlantic. Regionally significant nesting also occurs along the Caribbean coast of Mexico, inExpand

Genetic Stock Structure of Green Turtle (Chelonia mydas) Nesting Populations Across the Pacific Islands
Abstract: More than two decades have passed since the first studies documenting genetic population structure of green turtles (Chelonia mydas) were published. Since then many more have followed andExpand

Environmental Warming and Feminization of One of the Largest Sea Turtle Populations in the World
Climate change affects species and ecosystems around the globe [1]. The impacts of rising temperature are particularly pertinent in species with temperature-dependent sex determination (TSD), whereExpand

Nesting population origins of leatherback turtles caught as bycatch in the U.S. pelagic longline fishery
Fisheries that operate at large spatial scales and with high intensity have the potential to impact highly migratory species, and it is important to characterize threats to specific breedingExpand

Seasonal variations in abundance, diel vertical migration, and population structure of Metridia gerlachei at Port Foster, Deception Island, Antarctica
Abstract During five cruises in a 1.5-yr period between February 1999 and November 2000, we studied the abundance, vertical distribution, and population structure of the calanoid copepod MetridiaExpand

Hawksbill turtle terra incognita: conservation genetics of eastern Pacific rookeries
Abstract Prior to 2008 and the discovery of several important hawksbill turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata) nesting colonies in the EP (Eastern Pacific), the species was considered virtually absent fromExpand

Population structure and phylogeography reveal pathways of colonization by a migratory marine reptile (Chelonia mydas) in the central and eastern Pacific
Climate, behavior, ecology, and oceanography shape patterns of biodiversity in marine faunas in the absence of obvious geographic barriers. Marine turtles are an example of highly migratory creaturesExpand
