Management of the critically endangered hawksbill turtle in the Wider Caribbean (WC) has been hampered by knowledge gaps regarding stock structure. We carried out a comprehensive stock structure re-assessment of 11 WC hawksbill rookeries using longer mtDNA sequences, larger sample sizes (N = 647), and additional rookeries compared to previous surveys. Additional variation detected by 740 bp sequences between populations allowed us to differentiate populations such as Barbados-Windward and… Expand
Phylogeography, Genetic Diversity, and Management Units of Hawksbill Turtles in the Indo-Pacific.
TLDR
This study analyzed the most geographically comprehensive sample of hawksbill turtles from the Indo-Pacific Ocean, sequencing 766 bp of the mitochondrial control region from 13 locations (plus Aldabra, n = 4) and revealed 52 haplotypes distributed in 5 divergent clades. Expand
Population stock structure of leatherback turtles (Dermochelyscoriacea) in the Atlantic revealed using mtDNA and microsatellite markers
TLDR
It is concluded that the weak differentiation detected with microsatellites reflects a fine scale level of demographic independence that warrants recognition, and that all nine of the nesting colonies should be considered as demographically independent populations for conservation. Expand
Spatio-temporal patterns of mitochondrial DNA variation in hawksbill turtles (Eretmochelys imbricata) in Southeast Asia
TLDR
Although continuous sampling efforts are needed to determine the relationships between specific rookeries and foraging aggregations, the presence of multiple haplotypes in Malaysian foraging aggregation data suggests that there have been migrations to foraging grounds in Southeast Asia from various rookeries. Expand
Global phylogeography of the critically endangered hawksbill turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata)
TLDR
A global phylogeographic analysis using a compilation of previously published mitochondrial haplotype data to understand the dynamics and diversity of hawksbill populations worldwide revealed a complex demographic pattern associated to hawks Bill phyloGeography since the Pliocene. Expand
Fine-scale genetic population structure of loggerhead turtles in the Northwest Pacific
Effective conservation of globally distributed marine species relies on identification of demographically independent populations to ensure that management actions are directed at the appropriateExpand
Deeper Mitochondrial Sequencing Reveals Cryptic Diversity and Structure in Brazilian Green Turtle Rookeries
TLDR
Pairwise exact tests indicated that the northern Brazilian green turtle rookeries of the Rocas Atoll and Fernando de Noronha are discrete populations with respect to female natal homing. Expand
Genetic Stock Structure of Green Turtle (Chelonia mydas) Nesting Populations Across the Pacific Islands
TLDR
Assessment of stock structure of green turtles throughout the WCPO using mitochondrial DNA from 805 turtles sampled across 25 nesting locations establishes that sequencing of longer fragments of the control region does in some cases increase resolution and that there are at least seven independent stocks in the region. Expand
Population origin and historical demography in hawksbill (Eretmochelys imbricata) feeding and nesting aggregates from Brazil
TLDR
It was shown that hawksbills from feeding aggregates at the Brazilian islands of Fernando de Noronha and Rocas Atoll were mainly derived from Brazilian and Caribbean rookeries, although some were related to individuals from the eastern Atlantic and Indo-Pacific, indicating large transoceanic migrations for this species. Expand
New genetic insights about hybridization and population structure of hawksbill and loggerhead turtles from Brazil
TLDR
The results indicate that hawksbill and loggerhead rookeries along the Brazilian coast are likely connected by male-mediated gene flow, demonstrating a deep genetic divergence from the early Pliocene. Expand

TLDR
The results indicate that hawksbill and loggerhead rookeries along the Brazilian coast are likely connected by male-mediated gene flow. Expand

Comparative Phylogeny and Historical Perspectives on Population Genetics of the Pacific Hawksbill (Eretmochelys imbricata) and Green Turtles (Chelonia mydas), Inferred from Feeding Populations in the Yaeyama Islands, Japan
TLDR
Historical patterns of population dynamics and differentiation in hawksbill and green turtles in the Pacific were estimated from feeding populations in the Yaeyama Islands, Japan to indicate that hawks bill and green turtle probably underwent very similar patterns and processes ofpopulation dynamics over the last million years. Expand
Historical perspectives on population genetics and conservation of three marine turtle species
TLDR
The results suggest that much of the contemporary genetic structure has been significantly affected by complex patterns of historical population subdivision, long-distance dispersal, and restricted geneflow, and imply that the climatic and sea level fluctuations during the Pleistocene may have had contrasting effects on genetic structure. Expand
The genetic structure of Australasian green turtles (Chelonia mydas): exploring the geographical scale of genetic exchange
TLDR
The emerging general picture is one of dynamic population structure influenced by the capacity of females to relocate among proximal breeding sites, although this may be conditional on large population sizes as existed historically across this region. Expand
Phylogeography and population structure of the Atlantic and Mediterranean green turtle Chelonia mydas: a mitochondrial DNA control region sequence assessment
TLDR
The sequence data provide higher resolution both in terms of the number of mtDNA genotype variants and the phylogeographic relationships detected within the Atlantic region, and reveal a gene genealogy that distinguishes two groups of haplotypes corresponding to the western Caribbean and Mediterranean, and (ii) eastern Caribbean, South Atlantic and West Africa.

Genetic Analysis to Elucidate the Natural History and Behavior of Hawksbill Turtles (Eretmochelys imbricata) in the Wider Caribbean: a Review and Re-Analysis ANNAL. BAss'
Surveys of hawksbill turtles in the Atlantic Ocean have been undertaken to examine mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) diversity and to test hypotheses concerning female reproductive migratory behavior and theExpand
Genetic composition, population structure and phylogeography of the loggerhead sea turtle: colonization hypothesis for the Brazilian rookeries
TLDR
The results suggest the existence of two genetic population units of loggerheads in Brazil and corroborate natal homing behavior in loggerheads, and indicate that the colonization of Brazilian rookeries probably occurred from the southern USA stock. Expand
Global phylogeography of the leatherback turtle ( Dermochelys coriacea )
TLDR
The findings provisionally support the natal homing hypothesis for leatherback turtles, although several proximal nesting populations were indistinguishable, suggesting recent colonization or less precise natalHoming behaviour than documented for other marine turtle species. Expand
GLOBAL POPULATION STRUCTURE AND NATURAL HISTORY OF THE GREEN TURTLE (CHELONIA MYDAS) IN TERMS OF MATRIARCHAL PHYLOGENY
TLDR
Overall, the global matriarchal phylogeny of Chelonia mydas appears to have been shaped by both geography (ocean basin separations) and behavior (natal homing on regional or rookery‐specific scales) that suggests a strong propensity for natal homing by females. Expand
Turtle groups or turtle soup: dispersal patterns of hawksbill turtles in the Caribbean
TLDR
The results indicate that although there is a high degree of mixing across the Caribbean, current patterns play a substantial role in determining genetic structure of foraging aggregations (forming turtle groups), and integration of genetic and oceanographic data may enhance understanding of population connectivity and management requirements.
