Microsatellite DNA loci from the Diamondback terrapin (Malaclemys
Sexual dimorphism in the Barbour's map turtle, Malaclemys
barbouri (Carr and Marchand).
Bycatch was dominated by blue crab (Callinectes sapidus) and Florida stone crab (Menippe mercenaria) and included 5 diamondback terrapin (Malaclemys
terrapin) and 1 clapper rail (Rallus crepitans).
In the current study, these theories were examined relative to the reproductive biology of the diamondback terrapin (Malaclemys
terrapin pileata) inhabiting the salt marshes of Alabama.
These species included: Diamondback Terrapin (Malaclemys
terrapin); Red-eared Slider (Trachemys scripta elegans); Desert Tortoise (Gopherus agassizii); Texas Tortoise (Gopherus berlandieri); Gopher Tortoise (Gopherus polyphemus); Snapping Turtle (Chelydra serpentina); Eastern Box Turtle (Terrapene Carolina; especially T.
Nesting ecology and predation of diamondback terrapins, Malaclemys
terrapin, at Gateway National Recreation Area, New York.
Male and female diamondback terrapins (Malaclemys
terrapin) in eastern North America gather in shallow water during breeding season.
Abstract.--A preliminary assessment was made of Texas diamondback terrapin (Malaclemys
terrapin littoralis) in the Nueces Estuary, Texas from September 2010-December 2010 and in October 2011.
Diamondback terrapins, Malaclemys
terrapin, northern map turtles, Graptemys geographica, and spotted turtles, Clemmys guttata were not expected to be seen cohabitating with large numbers of T.
species are also being exported to Asian markets, including Common snapping turtles (Chelydra serpentina), Alligator snapping turtles (Macrochelys temminckii), softshell turtles (Apalone spp.), sliders (Trachemys spp.), Diamondback terrapins (Malaclemys
terrapin), and others (Altherr & Freyer, 2000; Behler, 1997; Williams, 1999).
Other turtles, such as Chrysemys picta (Tinkle et al., 1981), Malaclemys
terrapin (Burger, 1976), and Tryonyx muticus (Plummer, 1976), which lay eggs in shallower nests, show high nest predation.
A similar premise has been used to effectively exclude diamondback terrapins, Malaclemys
terrapin, from crab pots (Guillory and Prejean, 1998).
