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 ambientExpand
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.

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. Expand
Phenotypically Linked Dichotomy in Sea Turtle Foraging Requires Multiple Conservation Approaches
Using satellite tracking, the migratory movements of adult females from one of the world's largest nesting aggregations at Cape Verde, West Africa are investigated, revealing two distinct adult foraging strategies that appear to be linked to body size. Expand
Home on the range: spatial ecology of loggerhead turtles in Atlantic waters of the USA
Aim  Although satellite tracking has yielded much information regarding the migrations and habitat use of threatened marine species, relatively little has been published about the environmental nicheExpand
Only some like it hot — quantifying the environmental niche of the loggerhead sea turtle
Although the Atlantic waters of North America support hundreds of thousands of loggerhead sea turtles (Caretta caretta), remarkably little is known regarding their migratory ecology and habitat use.Expand
Predicting the impacts of climate change on a globally distributed species: the case of the loggerhead turtle
The likely impacts of climate change on the biology of these species, which are likely centred upon the thermal ecology of this taxonomic group, are overview and how much progress has been made and how future experimental and ecological focus should be directed are described. Expand
Satellite Tracking of Manta Rays Highlights Challenges to Their Conservation
We describe the real-time movements of the last of the marine mega-vertebrate taxa to be satellite tracked – the giant manta ray (or devil fish, Manta birostris), the world's largest ray at over 6 mExpand
Status of nesting loggerhead turtles Caretta caretta at Bald Head Island (North Carolina, USA) after 24 years of intensive monitoring and conservation
A 24-year set of data from monitoring of a nesting beach at Bald Head Island, North Carolina, USA, was analysed in parallel with limited data from nearby rookeries to investigate trends in loggerheadExpand
The roller coaster flight strategy of bar-headed geese conserves energy during Himalayan migrations
A “roller coaster” strategy, of tracking the underlying terrain and discarding large altitude gains only to recoup them later in the flight with occasional benefits from orographic lift, is shown to be energetically advantageous for flights over the Himalayas. Expand
