Green Turtle Habitat Selection and Movement Patterns

This project involved characterizing the resource use (or ecological niche) of juvenile and adult green turtles (Chelonia mydas) from the Gulf of Mexico, Brazil, and Qatar. Ultimately the aims of this project were focused on developing a statistical model that could be used to predict relative green turtle density at locations distant from where the turtles were tracked in this study. Interactive maps are included to show where green turtles moved at each of these sites with respect to environmental variables.
