We used snapshot global positioning system (GPS) units in stationary tests and on wood turtles (Glyptemys insculpta) in northeastern Minnesota. The location error in the stationary tests was 10 m. We collected 122,657 GPS locations and 242,781 temperature readings from 26 turtles. Each wood turtle’s location was classified based on the GPS location, turtle temperature, and temperature profiles from river, sun, and shade locations. From May to September, 68% of the locations were on land. Only 38% of the GPS location attempts were successful, indicating that wood turtles are using forested areas. The mean daily movement was 55 m. Snapshot GPS units and temperature loggers provided fine-scale GPS data useful in describing spatial ecology and habitat use of semi-aquatic turtles. View Paper here.
