Physiological, behavioral, and ecological aspects of migration in reptiles

  title={Physiological, behavioral, and ecological aspects of migration in reptiles},
  author={Amanda L Southwood and Larisa Avens},
  journal={Journal of Comparative Physiology B},
Seasonal movements between foraging, breeding, and overwintering sites occur in a wide variety of reptile species. Terrestrial snakes, lizards, and turtles migrate short distances (<20 km) between seasonal habitats, whereas fully aquatic marine turtles migrate hundreds to thousands of kilometers between foraging and breeding areas. The purpose of this article is to summarize aspects of migratory physiology and behavior in reptiles, particularly with regards to energetics and sensory mechanisms… CONTINUE READING
