Forage and migration habitat of loggerhead (Caretta caretta) and olive ridley (Lepidochelys olivacea) sea turtles in the central North Pacific Ocean
Satellite telemetry from 26 loggerhead (Caretta caretta) and 10 olive ridley (Lepidochelys olivacea) sea turtles captured and released from pelagic longline fishing gear provided information on theExpand
Turtles on the edge: movement of loggerhead turtles (Caretta caretta) along oceanic fronts, spanning longline fishing grounds in the central North Pacific, 1997–1998
Nine juvenile loggerhead sea turtles tracked during 1997 and 1998 in the central North Pacific by satellite telemetry all travelled westward, against prevailing currents, along two convergent frontsExpand
GLOBAL POPULATION STRUCTURE AND NATURAL HISTORY OF THE GREEN TURTLE (CHELONIA MYDAS) IN TERMS OF MATRIARCHAL PHYLOGENY
TLDR
Overall, the global matriarchal phylogeny of Chelonia mydas appears to have been shaped by both geography (ocean basin separations) and behavior (natal homing on regional or rookery‐specific scales) that suggests a strong propensity for natal homing by females. Expand
Adrenal and Hematological Responses to Stress in Juvenile Green Turtles (Chelonia mydas) with and without Fibropapillomas
TLDR
It is concluded that turtles with GTFP are chronically stressed and immunosuppressed. Expand
The Kuroshio Extension Bifurcation Region: A pelagic hotspot for juvenile loggerhead sea turtles
Satellite telemetry of 43 juvenile loggerhead sea turtles (Caretta caretta) in the western North Pacific together with satellite-remotely sensed oceanographic data identified the Kuroshio ExtensionExpand
Spatial and temporal variability in somatic growth of green sea turtles (Chelonia mydas) resident in the Hawaiian Archipelago
TLDR
The Hawaiian green turtle stock is characterised by slow growth rates displaying significant spatial and temporal variation and an immature growth spurt, which is consistent with similar findings for a Great Barrier Reefgreen turtle stock that also comprises many foraging-ground populations spanning a wide geographic range. Expand
Morphologic and cytochemical characteristics of blood cells from Hawaiian green turtles.
TLDR
The classification of green turtle blood cells clarifies improper nomenclature reported previously and provides a reference for future hematologic studies in this species. Expand
Quantitative analysis of herpesvirus sequences from normal tissue and fibropapillomas of marine turtles with real-time PCR.
TLDR
Although FPTHV pol sequences amplified from tumors are highly related to each other, single signature amino acid substitutions distinguish the Australia/Hawaii, Mexico/Costa Rica, and Florida/Caribbean groups. Expand
Blood Biochemistry Values of Green Turtles, Chelonia Mydas, With and Without Fibropapillomatosis
TLDR
It is concluded that blood reference values should be established for green turtles at the population level and by geographic area considering disease status, age, sex, and seasonal variations. Expand
Trans-Pacific migrations of the loggerhead turtle (Caretta caretta) demonstrated with mitochondrial DNA markers.
TLDR
To determine the origin of the Baja California feeding aggregate and North Pacific fishery mortalities, samples from nesting areas and pelagic feeding aggregates were compared with genetic markers derived from mtDNA control region sequences and found that 57 of 60 pelagic samples match haplotypes seen only in Japanese nesting areas, implicating Japan as the primary source of turtles in the North Pacific Current and around Bijuana California.
