Data from: The geomagnetic environment in which sea turtle eggs incubate affects subsequent magnetic navigation behavior of hatchlings

Matthew J. Fuxjager, Kyla R. Davidoff, Lisa A. Mangiamele & Kenneth J. Lohmann
Loggerhead sea turtle hatchlings (Caretta caretta) use regional magnetic fields as open-ocean navigational markers during trans-oceanic migrations. Little is known, however, about the ontogeny of this behaviour. As a first step towards investigating whether the magnetic environment in which hatchlings develop affects subsequent magnetic orientation behaviour, eggs deposited by nesting female loggerheads were permitted to develop in situ either in the natural ambient magnetic field or in a magnetic field distorted by magnets placed around...
