Item Identification

Title: Gulf of Mexico Kemps ridley sea turtle age and growth
Short Name: GoM Kemps Ridley Age and Growth
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2017
Abstract:

This study involves analysis of skeletal growth marks in humerus bones of 333 Kemps ridley sea turtles stranded dead along the Gulf of Mexico US coast (hatchling to adult) and provides age, growth rate, and stage duration estimates

Purpose:

To characterize size-at-age relationships, growth patterns, age and size at maturation, and adult stage duration for Kemps ridley sea turtles in the Gulf of Mexico

Data Quality

Comparability:

Validated back-calculation of somatic growth rates from skeletal growth marks yielded means and ranges that encompassed those of previous loggerhead growth studies in this geographic area.

Quality Control Procedures Employed:

Multiple readers conferred to assign age estimates.
