First insights into genetic diversity and population structure of loggerhead turtles (Caretta caretta) nesting at the Ponta do Ouro Partial Marine Reserve, Southern Mozambique

Loggerhead turtles (Caretta caretta) are widely distributed and threatened marine turtles, and have been grouped into nine discrete population segments (DPS; NMFS, 2009). Several factors contribute to the separation of these DPS, including the described existence of barriers to gene flow between them. This is the first study on the genetic diversity of loggerhead populations nesting in southern Mozambique.
