Abstract

The goals of this project were three-fold: 1. Development of microsatellite assays for loggerhead, Caretta c retta, nesting populations in the Southeastern United States 2. Development of microsatellite assays for hawksbill, Eretmochelys imbrlcsts. nesting populations in the Caribbean 3. Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) analysis of hawksbill, Eretmochelys imbricata, nesting and foraging populations in the Caribbean The main objective are to elucidate male migratory behavior through the use of nuclear DNA analysis and to improve methodology and databases for Mixed Stock Analysis (MSA) of hawksbill and loggerhead turtles utilizing maxim likelihood algorithms. (Document has 5pp.)
