Long‐term trends in marine turtle size at maturity at an important Atlantic rookery
For species reaching maturity at a range of ages or sizes, factors that influence juvenile growth and size at maturity may have lasting impacts on overall fitness. Assessing when animals reach maturity is especially challenging for species which are difficult to follow through time as a result of highly migratory behavior, long life spans, or both. We examined nesting female size in a reproductive assemblage of green turtles (Chelonia mydas) and loggerheads (Caretta caretta) on the east coastdoi:10.1002/ecs2.3631 fatcat:fw4xtdwuvvaund22fitypq65ri
