Table 2. Growth Rate (ΔL/Δt) and Midlength (L1 + L2)/2 Calculated from Green Turtle Growth Data Divided into 10 cm Straight Carapace Length (SCL) Data Bins Note: For each group (length bin) the standard deviations (SD) and total number of measurements (n) are given. Data are from recaptures on Saipan and Rota; no recaptures occurred on Tinian. In the 50–60 cm length bin, the growth rate was significantly higher on Saipan than it was on Rota (Welch’s t test: t = -10.43, df = 29, P < .01). Saipan turtles had a significant difference in growth rates across the different length bins (one-way ANOVA: F = 4.61, df = 2, P = .014). A Tukey-Kramer HSD test suggested that growth rates in the 50–60 cm length bin were significantly higher than those in the 40–50 cm bin (q-stat = 1.28, df = 56).
