These data represent reproductive ecology characteristics for 4 species of mature female turtles captured at Elephant Butte Reservoir on the Rio Grande River in New Mexico, during two field survey periods in June 2012 and 2013. Data were collected on female reproductive ecology including clutch size, egg size, timing of egg production, and the percentage of reproductive females using X-radiography. The purpose of these data are to add to the deficient information on the reproductive ecology of four turtle species at the Elephant Butte Reservoir on the Rio Grande and Black River in New Mexico. Data contained in this worksheet were analyzed to determine clutch and egg sizes for four native species of turtles (Apalone...

Injury and abnormality data for southwestern pond turtles (Actinemys pallida) from 3 sites along the Mojave River, California from separate surveys in 1998-1999 and 2017-2019
These data were compiled to assess the size, structure, and health of various populations of Actinemys pallida along the length of the Mojave River. Objective(s) of our study were to determine the extent of injuries and abnormalities within our Actinemys pallida populations (including statistical analyses comparing injuries with turtle sex and size) and estimate the cause(s) of the injuries and abnormalities. These data represent injuries and abnormalities from the effects of physical hazards encountered by turtles in their habitats. These data were collected in the Mojave Desert of California at three separate study sites along a length of the Mojave River in San Bernardino County between May 1998–October 1999...
