Biology of Sea Turtles, Volume 3 by Jeanette Wyneken

By Jeanette Wyneken

Sea turtles have existed for thousands of years, making them attention-grabbing topics of analysis. within the final twenty years, the technology of sea turtle biology has elevated at an exponential price, resulting in significant advances in lots of parts. This publication synthesizes the result of those advances and makes a speciality of how those endangered marine reptiles function in, adapt to, and are established upon specific positive aspects in their marine Read more...

Computational Ocean Acoustics

Because the mid-1970s, the pc has performed an more and more pivotal function within the box of ocean acoustics. swifter and cheaper than real ocean experiments, and able to accommodating the entire complexity of the acoustic challenge, numerical versions are actually usual learn instruments in ocean laboratories.

Biogeography and biodiversity of western Atlantic mollusks

"Detailing 3 marine molluscan faunal provinces (Carolinian, Caribbean, and Brazilian), this quantity examines the distribution and evolutionary styles of the marine mollusks of the tropical and subtropical areas of the western Atlantic Ocean. It additionally covers the paleobiogeography of the tropical Americas, discussing the ancestral biogeographical areas that gave upward thrust to the hot provincial and subprovincial preparations.

Biological sampling in the deep sea

"The deep sea covers over 60% of the skin of the earth, but below 1% has been scientifically investigated. there's turning out to be strain on deep-sea assets and on researchers to bring info on biodiversity and the results of human affects on deep-sea ecosystems. even supposing medical wisdom has elevated swiftly in fresh a long time, there exist huge gaps in worldwide sampling insurance of the deep sea, and significant efforts remain directed into offshore learn.

Respiration, evaporation, excretion of waste products), whereas the oxygen isotope is lost due to water turnover and incorporation into metabolically produced CO2. The difference in washout curves of the two isotopes provides a measure of CO2 production and, therefore, metabolic rate (Speakman, 1997). Clusella Trullas et al. (2006) employed DLW to investigate differences in the energetic cost of various locomotory activities associated with hatchling dispersal, and documented that the energetic costs of digging and crawling on land were four to five times higher than RMR.
