Globally, sea turtle hybridization has been reported at very low frequencies. However, in Brazil, a high incidence (>40% of morphologically assigned hawksbills) of hybridization between loggerheads and hawksbills has been reported. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first analysis of the effect of hybridization on the reproductive output of sea turtle hybrids. We used nuclear and mitochondrial markers to assign a status of hawksbill (Eretmochelys imbricata), loggerhead (Caretta caretta… CONTINUE READING
