Sea Turtle Ecology and Population Dynamics Research at NEFSC
The Protected Species Branch is collaborating with federal and academic partners to develop and evaluate quantitative tools to assess the impact of anthropogenic impacts on marine turtle populations.
We are currently working on an extension of a simulation model documented in this publication:
Warden, ML, HL Haas, KA Rose, PM Richards. 2015 A spatially explicit population model of simulated fisheries impact on loggerhead sea turtles (Caretta caretta) in the Northwest Atlantic Ocean. Ecological Modelling 299:23-39.
