Environmental and anthropogenic impacts on intraspecific variation in leatherback turtles : opportunities for targeted research and conservation

  title={Environmental and anthropogenic impacts on intraspecific variation in leatherback turtles : opportunities for targeted research and conservation},
  author={Bryan P. Wallace and Vincent S Saba},
Intra-specific variation in life history traits and/or population trends provides ‘natural experiments’ to identify causes of observable differences among populations of organisms. Geographically widespread marine species, for example, can experience variation in both environmental and anthropogenic impacts across their ranges that can differentially influence expression of life history traits and population dynamics in separate populations. For example, body size and reproductive output… CONTINUE READING
