Ecological regime shift in the West Atlantic?

Recently, large collaborations between sea turtle monitoring programs in the West Atlantic have identified regional declines in growth rates for loggerheads, hawksbills, and greens. This may be evidence for a large-scale “ecological regime shift.” See my whole post on our lab’s blog on Abaco Scientist HERE.
