Growth and population characteristics of blandings turtle emydoidea blandingii in massachusetts usa

, : Growth and population characteristics of blandings turtle emydoidea blandingii in massachusetts usa. Herpetologica 33(4): 410-414

The median border lengths of plastral growth rings were summed for 26 Blanding's turtles (E. blandingii) to estimate plastron length at the end of each growing season. There was a decrease in percent plastron growth per year from the 1st (81.4%) to the 11th (4.0%) growing season. Based on length frequency analysis, .male.male. apparently mature at a plastron length of 181-190 mm. Maturation is probably correlated with age rather than size. The length-weight relationship is described by the equation W = .00033 CL2.844. Rapid growth and large size of many individuals in the population are attributed to high nutrient influx from a nearby sewage treatment plant.
