Diet and investigation of immature sea turtles in the coastal waters of West Florida 1997-2003 (NCEI Accession 0156706)

browse graphicPreview graphic
This data contains sea turtle life history,diet analysis, and environmental data, recorded as csv spreadsheets ranging from 1997 to 2003. This data was used to determine relative abundance, temporal and spatial distributions, movements, habitat requirements, feeding habits, and sex ratios of immature sea turtles in the nearshore waters of West Florida. Research efforts focus on the highly endangered Kemps Ridley turtle, but other turtle species were opportunistically collected during routine sampling operations.
