Although our single sample of picta
(population 2) has a low genetic distance to nearby populations of oregonensis, it contains five unique variants [Pgdh (h), Ldh-2 (a), Iddh (f), Aat-2 (d), and Pep-D (f)].

Vitellogenin concentration was significantly elevated in hypophysectomized Chrysemys picta
that received both estradiol and growth hormone (GH) injections in comparison to turtles that received only estradiol or only GH injections , suggesting that GH may synergize with gonadal hormones to promote vitellogenesis.

scripta, most frequently, were Pseudemys rubriventris and Chrysemys picta
. In mixed communities of slider, red-bellied, and painted turtles, on average, only 20% of identified turtles were sliders.
Furthermore, we lack a phylogenetic hypothesis that includes all species of the picta
group; thus, we cannot map the bioacoustic traits onto a phylogenetic hypothesis of the group in order to assess any evolutionary trend.

In this context, we conducted a non-choice experimental assessment of the capability of rocky intertidal herbivores to consume and digest algal versus animal food, selecting three common grazing mollusks widely distributed on the Chilean coast (from 18[degrees] to at least 42[degrees]S; Oliva & Castilla, 1986; Hidalgo et al., 2006): the polyplacophoran Chiton granosus Frembly, and the key-hole limpets Fissurella limbata Sowerby and Fissurella picta
Resultados similares fueron reportados para los nidos de Chrysemys picta
marginata (Chritens & Biders 1987) y Chrysemys picta
belli (Legler 1954), cuyas tasas de depredacion fueron menores cuando estos se encontraron mas alejados de los cuerpos de agua.
