Abstract

Objectives: Evaluate movement and distribution patterns of sea turtles in our series of study sites in The Bahamas. This objective includes the questions of where do the turtles come from, how long are they resident in these sites, and where do they go when they leave. Collect data that will allow us to develop techniques to compare habitat quality and to serve as a foundation for studies of the role of green turtles in seagrass ecosystems. Evaluate models for estimating growth rates and carrying capacities for sea turtles based on our data from a long-term study of immature green turtles in the southern Bahamas. (Document has 7 pages.)
