Regional Management Units for Marine Turtles: A Novel Framework for Prioritizing Conservation and Research across Multiple Scales
The nested envelope models, or Regional Management Units (RMUs), are a solution to the challenge of how to organize marine turtles into units of protection above the level of nesting populations, but below thelevel of species, within regional entities that might be on independent evolutionary trajectories.
Global Conservation Priorities for Marine Turtles
A new assessment framework was developed that allowed to evaluate, compare and organize marine turtle RMUs according to status and threats criteria, and should serve as a model for conservation status assessments and priority-setting for widespread, long-lived taxa.
Plastic and marine turtles: a review and call for research
It is demonstrated that urgent action is required to better understand the effects of plastic debris and its effects on marine turtles, so that appropriate and effective mitigation policies can be developed.
Global research priorities for sea turtles: informing management and conservation in the 21st century
Over the past 3 decades, the status of sea turtles and the need for their protection to aid population recovery have increasingly captured the interest of government agencies, non-governmental
Marine natural products as novel antioxidant prototypes.
Cellular uptake dramatically affects the potential significance of antioxidants discovered using only the DPPH assay, and the apparent "proantioxidants" hormothamnione A diacetate and Laurencia monomer diacetates require metabolic activation for antioxidant activity.
Proxy indicators of sand temperature help project impacts of global warming on sea turtles in northern Australia
Global warming poses serious threats to sea turtle populations since sex determination and hatching success are dependent on nest temperature. Nest sex ratios may be skewed towards a predominantly
Bridging Knowledges: Understanding and Applying Indigenous and Western Scientific Knowledge for Marine Wildlife Management
Cross-cultural knowledge sharing in natural resource management is receiving growing academic attention. Further consideration is necessary regarding how indigenous and Western knowledges are
