Science



The last 10 years have seen growing interest in the issue of climate change and empirical research on its impacts on marine turtles. Several review papers (see below) summarize our current state of knowledge, and a wealth of new research is being produced that will help us to understand not only the impacts of climate change on marine turtles and their habitats, but also how marine turtles may respond to changing conditions and the management options available to us to help reduce their vulnerability.

This section will be regularly updated as new research is published. If you know of relevant publications that are missing, please let us know.
