Multiple paternity in a Pacific marine turtle population: maternal attributes, offspring outcomes and demographic inferences

Abstract:

Variation in levels of multiple paternity (MP) among species, populations and individuals has important ecological and evolutionary ramifications including maintenance of genetic diversity and offspring fitness benefits. Within species, differences in breeding experience and body size may affect levels of MP via mate choice preferences. The present study tested these ideas in an Australian loggerhead turtle (Caretta caretta) population at Mon Repos Beach (24°48°S, 152°27°E, Queensland) t...
