Migration of green turtles (Chelonia mydas) from Australasian feeding grounds inferred from genetic analyses

Dethmers, Kiki E.M.; Jensen, Michael P.; Fitzsimmons, Nancy; Broderick, Damien; Limpus, Colin J.; Moritz, Craig

Description

Coastal seagrass habitats in tropical and subtropical regions support aggregations of resident green turtles (Chelonia mydas) from several genetically distinct breeding populations. Migration of individuals to their respective dispersed breeding sites provides a complex pattern of migratory connectivity among nesting and feeding habitats of this species. An understanding of this pattern is important in regions where the persistence of populations is under threat from anthropogenic impacts. The...[Show more]
