Biology of Sea Turtles, Volume 3 by Jeanette Wyneken

By Jeanette Wyneken

Sea turtles have existed for thousands of years, making them attention-grabbing matters of research. within the final twenty years, the technological know-how of sea turtle biology has increased at an exponential expense, resulting in significant advances in lots of components. This publication synthesizes the result of those advances and makes a speciality of how those endangered marine reptiles function in, adapt to, and are based upon specific beneficial properties in their marine Read more...

Is based on the idea that dive duration is dictated primarily by O2 stores and O2 utilization. , 2007). The balance between aerobic and anaerobic metabolism during submergence and the levels of blood and tissue lactate that sea turtles tolerate without altering dive patterns are topics worthy of further investigation. Turtles, in general, have a high blood and tissue buffering capacity (Jackson, 2000), so it is not unreasonable to assume that sea turtles could maintain a consistent dive pattern with accumulation of low to moderate levels of lactate.
