Abstract

The purpose ofthis project was to collect sand and nest temperature information from loggerhead nesting beaches and in situ nests in Northwest Florida, perform sex ratio analysis on eggs collected from those nests, and describe general sand characteristics and variations in weather conditions within the experimental area. This information was to be used to determine what variations in sand temperatures and loggerhead nest incubation temperatures exist across Northwest Florida, evaluate differences in sand characteristics and weather conditions throughout the Florida Panhandle and how these differences relate to variations in incubation temperatures, and determine the sex ratios of loggerhead sea turtles produced on Northwest Florida beaches.(3 page document)
