A generalized additive mixed modelling approach was used to investigate the somatic growth of hawksbill turtles Eretmochelys imbricata (23.7 to 80 cm curved carapace length [CCL]) on nearshore coral reef sites around Barbados at depths of 12 to 35 m. The effects of body size, sex, sampling year, recapture interval and an indicator of foraging habitat quality on growth rates were investigated. The model accounted for about 60% of the variance in growth rates, but only mean size and sampling year… Expand
