Kelly R. Stewart, Michael C. James, Suzanne Roden and Peter H. Dutton Assignment tests, telemetry and tag-recapture data converge to identify natal origins of leatherback turtles foraging in Atlantic Canadian waters Journal of Animal Ecology 82
This study involves multiple methods to assign natal origins to foraging leatherback turtles off the coast of eastern Canada. There are very few papers to date that use telemetry, tags and genetics in combination to do this for any species. This work highlights the importance of long-term monitoring and tagging programs in nesting and high-use foraging areas, and may help to identify where international recovery efforts may be most effective.
