Pan-Atlantic analysis of the overlap of a highly migratory species, the leatherback turtle, with pelagic longline fisheries
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
Genetic composition of green turtle feeding grounds in coastal waters of Argentina based on mitochondrial DNA
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
Atlantic Leatherback Migratory Paths and Temporary Residence Areas
This high degree of behavioural plasticity in Atlantic leatherback turtles makes species-targeted conservation strategies challenging and stresses the need for a larger dataset for providing general recommendations in terms of conservation. Expand
Insights on leatherback turtle movements and high use areas in the Southwest Atlantic Ocean
The first data on movements, habitat use and diving behavior of leatherback turtles in the Southwest Atlantic Ocean (SWA) is presented and the importance of the Rio de la Plata estuary as a key foraging area for D. coriacea in the SWA is highlighted. Expand

Origin and genetic diversity of leatherbacks (Dermochelys coriacea) at Argentine foraging grounds
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
Argentinian coastal waters: A temperate habitat for three species of threatened sea turtles
It is suggested that an important concentration of these species occurs in the estuarine, highly productive areas of Samborombón Bay and El Rincón, although green and loggerheads were also recorded as far south as northern Patagonian waters. Expand

Intra-specific variation in skull morphology of juvenile Chelonia mydas in the southwestern Atlantic Ocean
Con Conserving priority Caribbean nesting grounds during regional management initiatives might protect phenotypic variability and ultimately population diversity and resilience and imply evolutionary consequences for genetic diversity and trophic polymorphism if there is increased future bias towards CM-A8.

Are stocks of immature loggerhead sea turtles always mixed
The homogeneous stock located relatively close to the rookery where individuals originated contradicts the paradigm of immature loggerhead sea turtles forming mixed stocks in foraging and developmental areas. Expand
