Figure 3-1. Morphometric indices and growth rates for turtles in each of three treatment groups.
Turtles in the AL group (n = 7) were fed adlibitum for 12 weeks. Turtles in the R-AL
group (n = 10) were fed 50% of initial mass-specific AL intake for 5 weeks and then
fed ad libitum for 7 weeks. Turtles in the R group (n = 10) were fed 50% of initial
mass-specific AL intake for 12 weeks. Each point represents mean + standard error.
Means were evaluated using analysis of variance with Tukey's Honestly Significant
Difference or Tamhane's T2 post hoc tests or using a Kruskal-Wallis test and
pairwise Mann-Whitney U tests with a Bonferroni correction for multiple
comparisons. Means that are significantly different atp < 0.05 are indicated by
different letters. Abbreviations: SGR = specific growth rate, BM = body mass, CL =
carapace length.
