University of Toronto Research Project

My name is Lauren Lawson and I am performing research in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Toronto, under the supervision of Dr. Njal Rollinson (http://wp.biota.utoronto.ca/rollinson/). My work involves a large meta-analysis on artificial incubation of turtle eggs, with the ultimate goal of understanding current incubation methods used in zoos, headstart programs, and elsewhere. By completing this anonymous survey, you will be providing critical insight into the current methods conservation organizations are using in the field, which will help guide my research.

Question Title

* 1. What is the latin name of your study species?
(If you work with more than one species, pleaseĀ report theĀ one you work most commonly with; or fill out the survey once for each species)

Question Title

* 2. What mean incubation temperature do you use to incubate eggs?

Question Title

* 3. If you know the upper pivotal temperature for your species please state it below. (NA if species does not have TSD)

Question Title

* 5. Is the goal to produce more females than males?

Question Title

* 6. What is done with the hatchlings after incubation is completed?

Question Title

* 7. Please state below the geographic location of where the majority of individuals in your source population come from. (e.g : nearest major city)

Question Title

* 8. Please feel free to add additional comments on your methods or motivations below
