Item Identification

Title: Adult loggerhead turtle size, age, stage duration
Short Name: Adult loggerhead turtle size, age, stage duration
Status: Completed
Creation Date: 1990
Revision Date: 2016
Abstract:

This study involves analysis of skeletal growth marks in humerus bones of 313 loggerhead sea turtles (Caretta caretta) stranded dead along the Atlantic US coast (hatchling to adult) and provides age and growth rate estimates

Purpose:

To characterize age and size at maturation and adult stage duration for loggerhead sea turtles in the western North Atlantic

Data Quality

Analytical Accuracy:

Ages at maturation estimated from (1) the rapprochement skeletal growth mark; (2) back-calculated SCL-at-age data; and (3) bootstrapping and fitting Fabens modified von Bertalanffy growth curve to back-calculated growth data were very similar between approaches, but demonstrated a wide possible range.

Quality Control Procedures Employed:

Multiple researchers worked to assign consensus age for each sample
