Hatchling size in the turtle Chrysemys
picta bellii from western Nebraska: relationship to egg and maternal body size.
Other Einyclids, including Pseudemys concinna (17%) and Chrysemys
picta (7%) were less common.
Behavioral ecology of basking in the yellow-bellied turtle, Chrysemys
scripta scripta (Schoepff).
dorsalis in the southern Mississippi drainage region and Chrysemys
picta from the rest of the range of the genus, including records of the latter from Culberson and El Paso counties in far west Texas (Strecker 1915; Carr 1952; Raun & Gehlbach 1972; Thomas 1976; Dixon 2000).
picta marginata and Trachemys scripta elegans were randomly assigned to experimental groups: white-substrate warm water, white-substrate cool water, black-substrate warm water, or black substrate-cool water.

We compared camera traps to hoop nets by estimating probabilities of occupancy and detection for two species (Trachemys scripta, Red-eared Slider; Chrysemys
picta, Painted Turtle) in three regions of Illinois.
Linear regression analysis for species abundance and development gradients was conducted for Trachemys scripta, Pseudemys rubriventris and Chrysemys
picta using SPSS Vers.

This leech is commonly reported to blood-feed on Chelydra serpentina and Chrysemys
picta turtles (Sawyer 1972, 1986; Amin 1981), which may represent the preferred hosts for this leech.

Recent studies on the Midland painted turtle, Chrysemys
picta, have demonstrated that variation, in habitat substrate background coloration can induce corresponding lighter or darker shell coloration.
