HEMATOLOGICAL VALUES IN THE LEATHERBACK SEA TURTLE DERMOCHELYS CORIACEA FOUND AT BARRA DELA CRUZ BEACH, OAXACA, MÉXICO
Journal of Global Ecology and Environment,
In the months of December and January of the nesting 2013 season 2014 were copies of leatherback turtles (Dermochelys coriacea) on the beach bar de la Cruz, Oaxaca to determine the correlation between the biometric measures curved carapace length and values of hematological, between these and the curved carapace width and Hematological values and the State of deterioration of each female. Were punctures in breast cervical dorsal half of spawning, when females were completely immobile ; 8 females, four altered blood samples were obtained (presence of barnacles, fungi and barnacle) and four not altered. We found seven blood cells in all turtles, varying according to the alteration. In not altered turtles were 10 783 erythrocytes values; 2 043 heterophile; 6 576 monocytes; 5 802 basophils; 2 010 azurophilic; trombocito 9 090 and lymphocyte 1 148, while in the altered: 2 622 erythrocytes; 1 077 heterophile; 1 557 monocytes; basophil 3 080; 1 927 azurophilic; thrombocytes 309 5 and 1 773 lymphocyte. Through the analysis of linear correlation was determined that organisms which presented alterations had fewer blood cells, which had no physical changes were greater number of blood cells and there is no correlation between the curved carapace width and the number of blood cells.
