Global Warming May Cook Sea Turtle Eggs : DNews

Global Warming May Cook Sea Turtle Eggs : DNews | Effects of Global Warming on Sea Turtles | Scoop.it
Turtle breeding grounds could eventually become makeshift ovens.
Joon Ho Hwang's insight:

This article is very refreshing in that it brings out brand new information. Although it is considered as a possibility, it is surprising that global warming may "cook" sea turtle eggs, thereby threatening the sea turtles' population further. This article will be useful for my introductory paragraph and body paragraph covering how sea turtles are threatened by global warming.

Sea Turtle Restoration Project : Global Warming a Triple Whammy for Sea Turtles

Joon Ho Hwang's insight:

This article briefly introduces information related to how increasing temperature affects sea turtles' nest. The article proposes "Sea Turtle Restoration Project," through which we could slow down sea turtles' decrease in population and therefore global warming. This article will be a good reference because it suggests some ways to protect sea turtles from global warming.

Animal Response to Environmental Warming

Click here to edit the title

Joon Ho Hwang's insight:

This article predicts how species respond to environmental warming based on "eco-physiological model." The article analyzes how animals interact in low, high, and intermediate temperatures. In conclusion, this article suggests that complexities in interaction of species make it difficult for animals to adapt to environmental warming. I will relate this research results to sea turtles' potential extinction.

Major Impacts of Climate Change on Sea Turtles

Major Impacts of Climate Change on Sea Turtles | Effects of Global Warming on Sea Turtles | Scoop.it
Joon Ho Hwang's insight:

This article on the webpage briefly summarizes major impacts of global warming on sea turtles. Although not very detailed, information included here is comprehensive: it ranges from male/ female-predominant habitats to diseases that could be caused by climate change. This will be helpful for me to write an introductory paragraph in my paper to introduce major impacts of global warming on sea turtles.

Risk of Sex Ratio Distortion in Sea Turtles

Click here to edit the title

Joon Ho Hwang's insight:

One of the main effects of Global Warming on sea turtles is sex ratio distortion. This article explores the effect of rising sea temperatures on sex ratio of sea turtles. With records of sea temperatures and other factors over the past years, the article supports its thesis that sex ratio of sea turtles is now being distorted.

Climate change: the effects on ocean animals

Climate change: the effects on ocean animals | Effects of Global Warming on Sea Turtles | Scoop.it
Hear from our researchers on conservation projects around the globe.
Joon Ho Hwang's insight:

This article broadly explores harmful effects of global warming on various ocean animals including sea turtles. The article demonstrates that global warming has been threatening those animals, and some animals are facing extinction. I will refer to this article in my paper so as to introduce information regarding harms of global warming on ocean animals in general.

Facts About Sea Turtles

Facts About Sea Turtles | Effects of Global Warming on Sea Turtles | Scoop.it
Sea turtle facts including biology, habitat, ecology, and threats for each of the seven species.
Joon Ho Hwang's insight:

This is a webpage that fully explores a wide range of information regarding sea turtles including characteristics and their potential extinction caused by global warming. This webpage attributes the main threat to sea turtles to human beings, therefore global warming in a bigger picture. This webpage will help me bring out general information related to sea turtles in my paper.

Global Warming at a Glance

Joon Ho Hwang's insight:

This article introduces and analyzes global warming: it explores a broad range of sub-topics including greenhouse effect and depletion of the ozone layer. The artice also proposes some ways to prevent global warming. Information here will be useful for my introductory paragraph to relate global warming to sea turtles and last paragraphs to suggest possible solutions to stop global warming.

Thoughts on Climate Change and Sex Ratio of Sea Turtles

Joon Ho Hwang's insight:

This editorial explores sea turtles' behavior in response to thermal changes in their habitats that are primarily caused by global warming. In addition, this article analyzes and demonstrates how thermal change in the ocean distorts sea turtles' sex ratio by creating male-dominant conditions. I will use this article in the "sex-ratio distortion" section of my paper to support one of my points that sex-ratio distortion is one of the main factors of sea turtles' extinction.

Decreasing Annual Nests in Sea Turtle Population

Joon Ho Hwang's insight:

As the title indicates, this article demonstrates and confirms that sea turtles' nests are decreasing in number. Such a conclusion is attained through various nest-measuring methods and statistical models. The article also analyzes the effects of spatial variations and changed shorelines.
