Species with environmental sex determination may have sex ratios different from 1:1, and so sex ratio is an important variable in studies on the population dynamics of these species. This is particularly important for the endangered sea turtles, in order to understand the possible effects of human impacts and conservation measures. Unfortunately, only adults show an evident external sexual dimorphism, so that sex ratio data are difficult to obtain and are limited for the juvenile class, which… Expand
