Loggerhead Haplotype Counts

Mitochondrial DNA control region haplotype counts based on 800 bp sequences and haplotype diversity for loggerhead turtle rookeries in the Mediterranean Sea, Atlantic, Southwest Indian Ocean, and Northwest Indian Ocean basins.
This updates information given in Shamblin et al. 2014 (Supplementary Table 3)
Haplotype count data for 380 bp sequences for SWC and TUN from the literature are also included for reference. These are indicated in gray to differentiate with ~ 800 base pair counts.

* indicates rookeries for which 380 haplotype counts were analyzed but samples were not resequenced for expanded haplotypes. Sample numbers in parentheses indicate novel samples added to previously analyzed sample sets. F Samples were skin biopsies or blood samples obtained from nesting females. E samples were eggs collected the morning following oviposition. N samples were either blood samples collected from hatchlings or dead hatchlings or eggshells collected during post emergence nest evaluations.
