Geographic patterns of genetic variation in a broadly distributed marine vertebrate: New insights into Loggerhead turtle stock structure from expanded mitochondrial DNA sequences
(PLOS ONE, 2014)
Previous genetic studies have demonstrated that natal homing shapes the stock structure of marine turtle nesting populations. However, widespread sharing of common haplotypes based on short segments of the mitochondrial ...
Molecular identification and genetic structure of Aedes phoeniciae (Diptera: Culicidae) in Northern Cyprus and Turkey
(Biochemical Systematics and Ecology (Elsevier), 2016)
Aedes mariae, Aedes phoeniciae and Aedes zammitii are three sibling species of the Mariae complex with a limited distribution. All these three species use semi-saline/saline rock pool habitats on the coastal areas of ...
Loggerhead turtles (Caretta caretta) foraging at Drini Bay in Northern Albania: Genetic characterisation revealed two new haplotypes
(Acta Herpetologica, 2012)
Loggerhead turtles (Caretta caretta) was studied over 3 summers in a nearshore habitat, the Patoku area in the southern part of Driniki Bay, Albania. Tissue samples were collected from 40 loggerhead turtles incidentally ...
THE EFFECT OF CLIMATE CONDITIONS ON GREEN TURTLE NESTING SUCCESS IN AKYATAN, TURKEY
(THIRD MEDITERRANEAN CONFERENCE ON MARINE TURTLES, 2008)
The aim of this study is to investigate the influence of climate conditions, mainly changing daily air temperature, on nesting success. The data were collected during the 2006 and 2007 reproduction seasons in Akyatan beach, ...
Marine turtle (Chelonia mydas and Caretta caretta), nesting in the eastern Mediterranean cost of Turkey: result of six years survey
(Herpetological Journal (British Herpetological Society), 2015)
The nesting biology of green and loggerhead sea turtles (Chelonia mydas and Caretta caretta) on Akyatan, Ağyatan, Tuzla and Yumurtalık Nature Reserve beaches along the eastern Mediterranean coast of Turkey was investigated ...
A new locality record of Chalcides ocellatus (Forskal, 1775) (Sauria: Scincidae) from southeastern Anatolia, Turkey
(Turkish Journal of Zoology, 2015)
One specimen of Chalcides ocellatus was found in the village of Görümlü, Silopi, Şırnak, southeastern Anatolia. It was examined in terms of morphometric, pholidotic, and coloration pattern characteristics. The distribution ...

Population status of Testudo hermanni in Turkey
(The 8 th World Congress of Herpetology, 2016)
The distribution of Hermann’s tortoise (Testudo hermanni) is limited to Europe, Balkans and Turkish Thrace. Unfortunately, the Turkish population has been over harvested for the pet trade between from 1974 to 2005 and ...
