... green turtles ( Chelonia mydas ) by measuring the δ 2 H values of tissues (epidermis and blood components) and dietary macromolecules collected in two controlled feeding experiments. Tissue δ 2 H and Δ 2 H Net values varied systematically among tissues, with epidermis having higher δ 2 H and Δ 2 H Net...

... energy, thus decreasing the likelihood of survival. In this study hatchlings were run on a treadmill for 200 or 500 m to investigate the physiological impacts of disorientation crawling in loggerhead ( Caretta caretta ) and green ( Chelonia mydas ) sea turtle hatchlings. Oxygen consumption, lactate...

...F. Papi; P. Luschi; S. Åkesson; S. Capogrossi; G. C. Hays ABSTRACT Green turtles ( Chelonia mydas ) that shuttle between their Brazilian feeding grounds and nesting beaches at Ascension Island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean are a paradigmatic case of long-distance oceanic migrants. It has been...

... water. To determine whether loggerhead ( Caretta caretta L.) and green turtle ( Chelonia mydas L.) hatchlings can detect wave direction in this way, we constructed a wave motion simulator to reproduce in air the circular movements that occur beneath small ocean waves. Hatchlings suspended in air...
