...Courtney S. Endres; Kenneth J. Lohmann SUMMARY During their long-distance migrations, sea turtles of several species feed on jellyfish and other invertebrates that are particularly abundant in ocean regions characterized by high productivity. An ability to distinguish productive oceanic regions...

... ), amphibians (Phillips, 1995) and lobsters( Boles and Lohmann, 2003 ). Our data suggest that sea turtles also possess this ability and are therefore capable of map-based navigation as defined by Able( 2001 ). The cue or cues that turtles used to assess their position relative to the capture site cannot...

Lohmann SUMMARY Although the orientation cues used by hatchling sea turtles have been studied extensively, little is known about the mechanisms of orientation and navigation that guide older turtles. To investigate the orientation cues used by juvenile loggerheads Caretta...

Calculations indicate that, at the depth at which hatchlings swim, accelerations produced beneath typical waves and swells along the Florida coast are sufficient to be detected by the vertebrate inner ear. We therefore hypothesize that hatchlings determine...
