About this book

Serving as a companion to Volume 1 and Volume 2, this updated edition includes recent advances in sea turtle research as well as brand new topics not previously covered. Written by eminent scientists, Biology of Sea Turtles, Volume III covers pressing subjects such as medical care and health assessment practices, organic contaminants and toxicants, and climatic considerations for sea turtle survival and well-being. It also includes roughly 100 illustrations, now in full color. Like its predecessors, Biology of Sea Turtles, Volume III is an indispensable tool to anyone in sea turtle research and conservation management.
