Juvenile loggerhead sea turtle (Caretta caretta) in a plastic pail in South Carolina. Loggerheads are an endangered species, populations of which are declining in part due to human interference with their reproduction cycles. This hatchling was displayed to attendees during an educational event in South Carolina called Keep Light퉌Ís Out for Loggerheads. It was a straggler that was excavated from its nest on the beach. This photo was taken in the wild. Management programs such as this one in SC dig stragglers from the nest four days after the last hatchling track is noted. They collect the hatchlings and then exhume the nest, meaning they collect live hatchlings, count the broken eggshells of ones that already got out and count the dead hatchlings.

An example of a late spring frost and snow event at the Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory, at 9,500 feet in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. This photograph was taken on 13 June 2001, when the temperature went down to 21.5 F, (-5.8 C). This cold period killed flower buds of several wildflower species that had already produced leaves and buds.

Photo of a hatchling loggerhead sea turtle (Caretta caretta) on a beach in South Carolina. Female loggerheads lay their eggs on land and juveniles, such as the one pictured here, migrate from the beach into the ocean. Unlike their adult counterparts that have red shells, juvenile sea turtles have dark-brown shells. This hatchling measured 5 cm (2 inches) long, which is average for the species.

Date of winter snowpack melt during the past 36 years at Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory. A trend toward earlier snowmelt was noted during the study period, though the correlation was not statistically significant due to large year-to-year variability.

Photo of a hatchling loggerhead sea turtle (Caretta caretta) entering the surf on a beach in South Carolina. After hatching, juvenile sea turtles are guided to the ocean by celestial light reflecting off the ocean. Artificial light disrupts this process and serves to reduce reproductive success in loggerheads.

A graphical representation of a frost event at the Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory (Colorado). The temperature dipped to 25.1 F on 11 June 2004. Winter snowpack melted at the monitoring location on 8 May that year. The late-spring frost killed flower buds that had developed in the four weeks following snowmelt.

Example of artificial lighting along a beach. Artificial lights inhibit the reproduction of loggerhead sea turtles (Caretta caretta) in two ways. First, adult females tend to avoid laying their eggs on beaches with artificial light. Second, hatchlings become disoriented and fail to migrate toward the ocean and instead wander along the beach and even further inlands. While wandering, disoriented hatchlings are more susceptible to nocturnal predators and become exhausted. Sources of artificial light include streetlights, sky glow, exterior lights on commercial establishments, beachfront homes, and even people near the beach carrying flashlights and setting bonfires.

A flowering plant of Helianthella quinquenervis (aspen sunflower, Asteraceae) at the Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory. This species has flower buds that are frost-sensitive. The plants have a mutualism with ants, which are attracted by extrafloral nectar secreted by the bracts that cover flower buds.

Image of a loggerhead sea turtle (Caretta caretta) hatchery in South Carolina. Nests are placed in an area where they are protected in varying degrees from natural or anthropogenic hazards. Efforts such as these are intended to increase the success rate of loggerhead reproduction and reverse population declines caused by human activities.

Ants (Formica obscuripes) searching for extrafloral nectar on the involucral bracts around ...

Ants (Formica obscuripes) searching for extrafloral nectar on the involucral bracts around a flower head in bud in the frost-sensitive herb Helianthella quinquenervis. The ants help to deter oviposition by flies (Tephritidae) that try to lay eggs on the flower heads. Because fly larvae eat developing seeds, the ants benefit the plants. Thus, the ant / herb interaction represents a mutualism. This mutualism can be disrupted if flower buds are killed by frost, as they won't secrete the extrafloral nectar. But frost also negatively impacts the flies, as frost-killed buds provide no food for the fly larvae.

A meadow with thousands of plants of Helianthella quinquenervis (aspen sunflower, Asteraceae) at peak bloom. This species is a common long-lived perennial plant in meadows near the Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory. This photo was taken during a year without frost damage. Compare the presence and density of sunflowers with the photograph of the same meadow in a year when frost damage killed all but a few flower buds.

Photo of a meadow with thousands of Helianthella quinquenervis (aspen sunflower, Asteraceae) plants. In the year that this photo was taken, a springtime frost killed all but a few flower buds. Compare with the photo of the same meadow in a year without frost. The lack of flowers in years having springtime frost has ecological consequences. There is no pollen or nectar for pollinators (bees and flies), no seeds for seed predators (tephritid flies and caterpillars), and no seed predators for parasitoid wasps.
