"Oxidative stress: a cost to arribada nesting in olive ridley sea turtles"
I'm Gabriela Arango, PhD candidate in the @JPVM_lab at the @berkeleyIB in UCB. Interested on 🐢💚
✅Oxidative stress
✅Hypoxia Image Ridleys exhibit a polymorphic nesting behavior:
Solitary = alone 🐢😕
Arribada = thousands of turtles nesting at once 🐢🐢🐢🐢🤩
Arribadas may provide fitness benefits 🧐 (i.e. mate finding or predator satiation), but the potential costs of arribada nesting remain understudied Image
