Growth in carapace length, carapace width, plastron length and body mass was measured in 149 growth increments for 122 green turtles, Chelonia mydas, at Great Inagua, Rahamas. Initial carapace length of the 149 growth increments ranged from 28.3-75.5 cm. Absolute growth rates for all linear parameters decreased with increasing size, but no significant difference in absolute growth rates for body mass was noted over the size range measured. Equations were developed to convert carapace length or… Expand
