Perspectives on Ocean Science: Sea Turtles of Indonesian New Guinea
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

Little is known of the initial phase of the sea turtle's lifecycle,especially the critically endangered leatherback. Ocean surface currents play an important role as "conveyer belts" for hatchlings, but these strong swimmers might still be able to influence their trajectories at sea. Join Scripps marine biology student Geoffrey Gearheart as he explains how scientists are determining the dispersal patterns and mechanisms of leatherback hatchlings of west Papua (Indonesia) and how this knowledge may help tailor more adequate conservation measures.

Rating
0.0 stars

Integrated Digitized Biocollections (iDigBio https://www.idigbio.org) is the National Resource for Advancing Digitization of Biodiversity Collections (ADBC) funded by the National Science Foundation. Through ADBC, data and images for millions of biological specimens are being made available in electronic format for the research community, government agencies, students, educators, and the general public.

The iDigBio specimen portal (https://www.idigbio.org/portal) provides access to millions of records about neontological and paleontological specimens curated at museums and other institutions in the US. Records might include information about the specimen, when, where and by whom it was collected, the institution providing the data, images and other media related to the specimen.
