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.
Population parameters for Chrysemys picta
in a New York pond.
Hatchling Chrysemys 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.
Genetic diversity in fragmented populations of Clemmys guttata and Chrysemys picta
marginata as shown by DNA fingerprinting.
in turtles, only adult Terrapene carolina (eastern box turtle), and hatchling Terrapene ornata (ornate box turtle), Chrysemys picta
(painted turtle), Emys blandingii (Blanding's turtle), and Malaclemys terrapin (diamondbacked terrapin) are known to survive freezing for periods >1 day (Storey, 2006).
