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
Leatherback, Dermochelys coriacea, Nesting Along the Atlantic Coast of Africa
ABSTRACT Leatherback nesting along the Atlantic coast of Africa extends from Mauritania in the north to Angola in the south, with a globally important nesting concentration located in Gabon inExpand
Long‐term decline of the western Pacific leatherback, Dermochelys coriacea: a globally important sea turtle population
The leatherbacks nesting at Bird's Head Peninsula, Papua Barat, Indonesia, account for 75% of the total leatherback nesting in the western Pacific and represent the last sizeable nesting populationExpand
Leatherback Turtle, Dermochelys coriacea, Hatching Success at Jamursba-Medi and Wermon Beaches in Papua, Indonesia
ABSTRACT Hatching success for leatherback turtles (Dermochelys coriacea) was low at 4 important nesting beaches in Papua, with high rates of tidal inundation, pig predation, and possible temperatureExpand
First Evidence of Leatherback Movement from Africa to South America

Effects of Exposed Pilings on Sea Turtle Nesting Activity at Melbourne Beach, Florida
Beach stabilization and nourishment are critical needs in Florida and along much of the U.S. coast. Because offshore sand resources are diminishing, there is much interest in the installation ofExpand
Evaluation of density-dependent processes and green turtle Chelonia mydas hatchling production at Tortuguero, Costa Rica
The role of density-dependent processes in sea turtle populations remains largely unknown. This study quantified density-dependent and density-independent processes that underlie hatchling productionExpand
A first estimate of sea turtle bycatch in the industrial trawling fishery of Gabon
Gabon hosts nesting grounds for several sea turtle species, including the world’s largest rookery for the leatherback turtle (Dermochelys coriacea), Africa’s largest rookery for the olive ridleyExpand
Intraspecific application of the mid‐domain effect model: spatial and temporal nest distributions of green turtles, Chelonia mydas, at Tortuguero, Costa Rica
The mid-domain effect (MDE) model was developed to evaluate patterns of species richness. We applied the MDE model to intraspecific distribution patterns – the spatial and temporal nest distributionsExpand
