Dear List-Members

I cross-post to the lists of Caribbean and herpetological interest.


It gives me great pleasure to announce the publication of the following paper in the new and growing  peer-reviewed conservation journal Endangered Species Research (ESR). It can be downloaded free of charge at the journals website at:  http://www.int-res.com/journals/esr/esr-home/


Blumenthal JM, Solomon JL, Bell CD, Austin TJ, Ebanks-Petrie G, Coyne MS, Broderick AC, Godley BJ 

Number 7: Satellite tracking highlights the need for international cooperation in marine turtle management 


The paper outlines the migratory routes and foraging grounds for Caribbean green and loggerhead turtles nesting in greatly reduced rookeries in the Cayman Islands. It highlights the potential past ecological footprint of the turtles of the Cayman Islands and the international co-operation that will be needed for the future conservation. Although directed take and bycatch are demonstrated concerns in the region, the paper highlights the lack of data as to the magnitude of these threats in the region.


This follows others recent papers:

Hemming JM, Winger PV, Herrington SJ, Gierhart W, Herod H, Ziewitz J 

Number 6: Water and sediment quality at mussel (Unionidae) habitats in the Ochlockonee River of Florida and Georgia 


Wood KR 

Number 5: Conservation status of the Hawaiian endemic fern Diplazium molokaiense (Athyriaceae) in Honomanu, East Maui, Hawai'i
