Occurrence of Hawksbill Turtles, Eretmochelys imbricata (Reptilia: Cheloniidae), near the Baja California Peninsula, Mexico
From 1997 to 2001 the occurrence of hawksbill turtles (Eretmochelys imbricata) was characterized at neritic foraging habitats along the Pacific coast of the Baja California Peninsula and in the GulfExpand
Observations on the ecology and survival outlook of the hawksbill turtle
The bearing of the reproductive isolation of separate island colonies on the survival position of the genus is briefly discussed and stomach contents of 29 mature turtles, killed by shell hunters on Tortuguero Bank, are listed. Expand
Notes On the Food of Sea Turtles: Eretmochelys Imbrica Ta (Linnaeus) and Dermochelys Coriacea (Linnaeus)
The sample of stomach contents of the leathery turtle demonstrated that it had eaten at least two species of Siphonophora and one species of Scyphozoa, and the presence of remains (nematocysts) of the mesopelagic siphonophore Apolemia uvaria Lesueur might imply that the Leathery turtle reaches considerable depths in search for food.

Nesting Ecology of the Hawksbill Turtle, Eretmochelys imbricata, in Guadeloupe, French West Indies from 2000–07
Surprisingly, it appears that the island of Guadeloupe hosts one of the largest Hawksbill populations in this region, highlighting the importance of making the most recent data available for the purposes of wildlife management. Expand
Long-distance migrations by the hawksbill turtle, Eretmochelys imbricata, from north-eastern Australia
A review of data from tag recoveries, genetic analysis and satellite telemetry indicates that adult female hawksbill turtles often exhibit migratory behaviour parallelling that of other marine turtle species, refuting the myth that hawkbill turtles remain resident at reefs associated with their nesting beaches.

Reproductive biology of the Hawksbill Eretmochelys imbricata at Tortuguero, Costa Rica, with notes on the ecology of the species in the caribbean
The mean carapace length of hawksbills has shown a steady decline, suggesting that the population is not demographically stable, and there is increasing evidence from tag returns that the Tortuguero hawksbill may also share the feeding grounds of the tortuguero green turtle in the Miskito Cays, Nicaragua.
