Individual Based Modeling of Green Turtle Spatial Dynamics in the Southwest Indian Ocean

Abstract : Southwest Indian Ocean (SWIO) represents a noteworthy region to study green turtle Chelonia mydas spatial ecology. Indeed, spatial complexity of the region and presence of numerous nesting sites (mostly islands) as well as vast nesting areas (mostly East-Africa and Madagascar) is a unique opportunity to understand the role of space in turtle ecology. For more than twenty years now, a number of effective studies have been conducted locally in major areas. Due to recent progress in wildlife tracking, movements of marine turtles between those sites are starting to be well-documented. Here, we propose an original approach to integrate this knowledge using a spatially explicit individual-based model.
