10.5. Threat: Invasive reptiles

Texte intégral

10.5.1 Red-eared terrapin Trachemys scripta

Likely to be beneficial

● Direct removal of adults

1Two studies, a replicated study from Spain using Aranzadi turtle traps, and an un-replicated study in the British Virgin Islands using sein netting, successfully captured but did not eradicate red-eared terrapin populations. Assessment: likely to be beneficial (effectiveness 40%; certainty 50%).

Unlikely to be beneficial

● Application of a biocide

3A replicated, controlled laboratory study in the USA, found that application of glyphosate to the eggs of red-eared terrapins reduced hatching success to 73% but only at the highest experimental concentration of glyphosate and a surface active agent. Assessment: unlikely to be beneficial (effectiveness 15%; certainty 50%).
