Sea turtles and pelagic fishes are evolutionarily distinct groups of animals with differences in sensory biology that may influence the ways in which they interact with fishing gear. The factors that attract sea turtles and target fish species to longline gear and bait are not well understood, but numerous sensory cues may be involved. In , a.

  The lives of fascinating sea animals is a topic that will engage young readers. In this series of sturdy, colorful, paperback, ""read-and-learn"" books, students explore facts about dolphins, sharks, seals, sea turtles, octopi, and jellies. The manners in w --NSTA RecommendsReviews: 9. Animals that migrate long distances through the sea, and especially pelagic species like sea turtles and cetaceans that travel across deep water, inhabit a sensory environment fundamentally different from that of the terrestrial world. Below the air–sea interface light diminishes rapidly with depth. Bartol S, Ketten DR () Turtle and tuna hearing.

Furthermore, many coastal animals and plants living anchored to the seabed, such as barnacles, mussels, corals and mangroves, produce drifting larvae or seeds.

Sea turtles spend the majority of their lives in coastal or pelagic waters, making in-water sources of mortality critical to population viability. Sea turtles have been negatively impacted by a number of.   In the last 20 years, the science of sea turtle biology has expanded at an exponential rate, leading to major advances in many areas. This book synthesizes the results of these advances and focuses on how these endangered marine reptiles operate in, adapt to, and are dependent upon particular features of their marine environment.   The success of the first volume of The Biology of Sea Turtles revealed a need for broad but comprehensive reviews of major recent advances in sea turtle y of Sea Turtles, Volume II emphasizes practical aspects of biology that relate to sea turtle management and to changes in marine and coastal ecosystems. These topics include the interactions of humans and sea turtles, Reviews: 1.
