Book Description :

Since the first volume of The Biology of Sea Turtles was published in 1997, the field has grown and matured in ways few of the authors would have predicted—particularly in the areas of physiology, behavior, genetics, and health. Volume III presents timely coverage of emerging areas as well as the integration of approaches and information that did not exist even a decade ago. The book assembles the foremost experts in each topic to provide the most up-to-date and comprehensive book on sea turtles available today. New areas covered include in vivo imaging of structure, spatial distributions of marine turtles at sea, epibiosis, imprinting, parasitology, and climatic effects. Life history is explored in three chapters covering age determination, predator-prey interactions, and mortality from bycatch. The Biology of Sea Turtles, Volume III will inspire scientists and students to explore and expand their understanding of these intriguing animals. The book provides clear baseline summaries, thoughtful syntheses, and effective presentation of the most fundamental topics spanning form and function, health, distributions, behavior, genetics, evolution, and ecology. Its scope and depth make it the definitive go-to reference in the field.

Book Description :

Sea turtles have existed for millions of years, making them fascinating subjects of study. In the last 20 years, the science of sea turtle biology has expanded at an exponential rate, leading to major advances in many areas. This book synthesizes the results of these advances and focuses on how these endangered marine reptiles operate in, adapt to, and are dependent upon particular features of their marine environment. New technology in data gathering, such as DNA analyses, remote sensing, and physiological monitoring techniques, has led to a much greater understanding of the biology of the sea turtle at all stages of their life history.

Book Description :

Sea Tu rtles of the World provides an in-depth look at these prehistoric looking reptiles that have lived on earth longer than 210 million years, surviving two waves of mass extinction. Author and photographer Doug Perrine guides the reader through the fascinating life-cycle of the sea turtle, from their harrowing dash from the nest to the ocean as vulnerable hatchlings through the many years spent at sea during maturation, to sexual maturity, reproduction, and migration. Perrine describes the evolution of the sea turtle, its anatomy, events that lead to its endangerment, and attempts to save the sea turtle. Table of Contents: Origin and Anatomy, Mating Behavior and Reproduction, The Lost Decade, Growing Up, The Incredible Journey, Sea Turtles and Humans, Families and Species, Watching Sea Turtles, Appendices, Bibliography, Index. Detailed descriptions of the Green Sea Turtle, Loggerhead Turtle, Hawksbill Turtle, Olive Ridley Turtle, Kemp's Ridley Turtle, Australian Flatback Turtle, and the Leatherback Turtle are included, as is a chapter on watching sea turtles from land and from the water. Annotation. Perrine, a writer and photographer specializing in marine life, offers an in-depth look at the natural history of sea turtles and details efforts to preserve them in this guide for general readers. Those who would like to watch sea turtles in their natural habitat will find information on the best land and water locations for observing them. A wealth of color photos highlights species diversity and the sea turtle's relationships with fish (and divers).

Book Description :

The smallest of the sea turtles, olive and Kemp’s ridleys are the only marine turtles to exhibit mass-nesting behavior, known as arribadas. This fascinating phenomenon, during which one could literally walk shell-to-shell across a beach, is considered one of the most amazing wonders of nature. In Biology and Conservation of Ridley Sea Turtles, Pamela T. Plotkin brings together the world’s experts on the genus Lepidochelys to present the first comprehensive, book-length examination of these fascinating animals. Featuring the writings of noted experts including Peter C. H. Pritchard, Jack Frazier, Rene Márquez-M., and Donna J. Shaver, the volume synthesizes over a half century of research. With chapters focused on evolution, development, genetics, physiology, reproduction, migration, and conservation, this book combines a wealth of knowledge and describes an agenda for further research. An integral part of oceanic ecosystems, ridleys present challenges for conservation. Olive ridleys are abundant in some areas and declining in others, whereas Kemp’s ridleys are endangered but slowly recovering. Both face beach-based threats and are prone to capture by commercial fisheries. Here Plotkin and her colleagues reveal the nature of these species and the steps needed to make sure they remain a permanent part of the marine environment.
