Green turtles may be used as biomonitors of marine environments because of their longevity and feeding habits (omnivorous during the first years of life and herbivorous during the juvenile and adult stages), which can indicate the degree of ocean contamination in the areas where they feed. Studies of metal and chemical element concentrations in the blood of green turtles are still rare; therefore, the results are difficult to interpret, although it appears that the serum levels of certain… CONTINUE READING
