New paper: Unravelling the climatic niche overlap of global sea turtle nesting sites: Impact of geographical variation and phylogeny

The processes that determine climatic niche dynamics are complex, especially for wide-ranging species where niche conservatism might differ at different life stages. In our new paper, published in Journal of Biogeography, we showed that geographical factors might supersede phylogenetic components when considering the climatic niche of distinct nesting population units of sea turtles across different oceans, highlighting their adaptive potential to local climate conditions.
