The reproductive biology of the Florida east coast terrapin, }!alaclemys terrapin tequesta was studied during 1977-1978 at the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, Brevard County, Florida. Mating occurred in small canals and ditches during late March and April. Terrapins exhibited a poorly developed courtship behavior system: this \vas attributed to the relative isolation of the species due to its brackish water habitat. Nesting occurred on dike roads, rather than on sand dunes as reported…

Nesting Habits of Diamondback Terrapins (Malaclemys terrapin) on the Atlantic Coast of Florida

The reproductive habits of the Florida east coast terrapin, Malaclemys terrapin tequesta were studied from 1977 to 1979 at the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, Brevard County, Florida.

Population genetics of the diamondback terrapin (Malaclemys terrapin)

The data suggest that translocation of eggs or head starting of terrapins within estuaries or among adjacentEstuaries is acceptable from a genetic standpoint, and past human activities may have drastically altered the genetics of current populations.

Nesting Ecology and Predation of Diamondback Terrapins, Malaclemys terrapin, at Gateway National Recreation Area, New York

The population of Diamondback Terrapins, Malaclemys terrapin, at Gateway National Recreation Area, New York may be undergoing demographic changes as a result of the introduction of raccoons.

Occurrence and Effects of Barnacle Infestations on Diamondback Terrapins (Malaclemys terrapin)

The occurrence and effects of barnacle infestations on two populations of diamondback terrapins were studied from 1977 to 1979 and it is suggested that barnacles infesting turtles be considered as parasites, rather than commensals.

Notes on the Nesting Ecology of Ouachita Map Turtles (Graptemys ouachitensis) at Two Wisconsin Sites Using Trail Camera Monitoring

Incidental observations on the nesting ecology of Ouachita map turtles were made at 2 sites on the Wisconsin River during research on the use of electric fencing to decrease turtle nest predation, finding Turtles nested in a bimodal diel pattern overall.

Behavior of Hatchling Diamondback Terrapins (Malaclemys terrapin) in the Field

This paper poses questions concerning reproductive strategies which have evolved among one group of vertebrates (the lizards), and provides quantitative data to answer them, and presents comparable data from birds, the vertebrate group most thoroughly studied in this respect.

Reproductive Variation Between Turtle Populations in a Single Geographic Area

Diet, rather than body weight or shell length, is suggested as being the factor responsible for observed differences in reproductive potential in painted turtle populations occupying differing habitats.
