... over winter, and with carapacal algal mass, and farm dam. In contrast, they do not show a preference based on turtle sex. Since C. longicollis of different size and sex show habitat selectivity within farm dams (Ryan and Burgin 2007), epibiont distribution is not due merely to opportunism. Australian...

Therefore, large rocks may not be necessary for captive breeding portions of management initiatives, which typically only involve tadpoles...
