NEST TEMPERATURES; SEX RATIOS; HATCHERY MANAGEMENT

Metabolic Heating and the Prediction of Sex Ratios for Green Turtles 

study about the contribution of metabolic heating to nest temperatures and sex determination in Green Turtle nests on Ascension Island
year 2000

The effects of sand temperature on pre-emergent Green sea turtle hatchlings

study about the effects of sand temperatures on incubation period, hatching and emergence success of Green Turtle nests in Costa Rica
year 2000

Impact of Clutch Relocation on Green Turtle Offspring

study about hatching success, hatchling size and thermal conditions of relocated Green Turtle nests versus in-situ nests on Ascension Island

CONSERVATION TECHNIQUES

Some of them came home: the Cayman Turtle Farm headstarting project for the Green Turtle

study about captive-raised hatchlings and yearling turtles, which were tagged and released from the Cayman Islands and re-captured years later in the Carribean area. The results suggest that Headstarting is a viable option to support a breeding population
year 2005

study about the effects of tourist attendance on Loggerhead Turtle nesting behaviour, nesting duration and hatchling production in Florida
year 1996


THREATS; DEVELOPMENT; ARTIFICIAL LIGHTING

Impacts of coastal development on hawksbill hatchling survival and swimming success during the initial offshore migration
