To examine the stock composition of Hawaiian foraging populations and evaluate current life-history hypotheses, mtDNA control region sequences from immature and adult green turtles that forage around the Hawaiian Islands were compared to potential source nesting populations across the Pacific. We examined the stock composition of the feeding ground (FG) populations at 5 index sites across the Hawaiian Archipelago, as well as animals stranded in areas outside these index sites. Six haplotypes… CONTINUE READING
