I am so excited for this article about my wetlands #turtle research. Read the article for details! I submitted it and also helped edit the entire newsletter for the storm water department. I love the community outreach!
This is how it printed, split between two pages, so read above the little line then the next page is below the line.
As always, no turtles are ever harmed. I am passionate about conservation and work with animals that I respect and care for deeply.

#novataxa #neotropic #turtle #Colombia #biodiversity #Herpetology • 2017 :: #Trachemys medemi, A #NewSpecies from northwestern Colombia turns the #Biogeography of South American #SliderTurtles Upside Down

Abstract :: #SouthAmerica was invaded by slider #turtles (Trachemys spp.) twice, with one immigration wave estimated to have reached South America 8.6–7.1 million years ago (mya) and a second wave, 2.5–2.2 mya. The two widely disjunct South American subspecies of Trachemys #dorbigni (northeastern and southern Brazil, Río de la Plata region of Argentina and Uruguay) are derived from the first dispersal pulse, while the two South American #subspecies of Trachemys #venusta (Colombia, #Venezuela) originated from the second immigration event. We describe a new #species of slider turtle from the lower #Atrato river basin of #Antioquia and #Chocó departments, northwestern Colombia. This new species, the Atrato slider (Trachemys medemi n. sp.), is the first representative of the older immigration wave inhabiting northern South America. Using phylogenetic analyses of 3,242 bp of mitochondrial and 3,396 bp of nuclear DNA, we show that T. medemi is more closely related to T. dorbigni than to the geographically neighboring subspecies of Trachemys grayi and T. venusta from Central America and northern South America. The two subspecies of T. dorbigni are separated from the Atrato slider by the Andes and the Amazon Basin, and occur approximately 4,600 km and 3,700 km distant from T. medemi. According to molecular clock calculations, T. medemi diverged from the last common ancestor of the two subspecies of T. dorbigni during the Pliocene (4.1–2.8 mya), with T. dorbigni diversifying later (2.3–1.9 mya) in eastern South America beyond the Amazon basin. The divergence of the T. dorbigni subspecies overlaps with the estimated arrival of T. venusta in South America (2.5–2.2 mya). This time is characterized by massive climatic and environmental fluctuations with intermittent dispersal corridors in South America. ....

Meet Tina #turtle, So I went to #chinatown yesterday and ran across a merchant selling these sad little slider #turtles. I know having her in a tank isn't the greatest, but compared to her potential future, I feel okay about it and am looking into release options. #sliderturtle #sliderturtles stole the name a bit @bspiker (Tina cat). Any advice is welcome :) #catsofinstagram #catsofinstagram #cats_of_instagram #cats #turtlesoninstagram #turtlesofig #animalliberation #animalsofinstagram #turtleadvice

Sadly they are trying to trap these #sliderturtles #yellowearedsliders in the Botanical Gardens as the EU considers them an invasive breed coming from the US, but I'm glad this little guy got away 🙌🏻🐢
