About this book

Turtle remains frequently recovered in faunal material from archaeological excavations consist mainly of pieces of shell. Unfortunately, because the shell commonly breaks into many tiny pieces which have been previously deemed difficult to classify, turtle remains are usually not identified to family, genus, or species. This atlas provides a visual and descriptive guide of the carapacial, plastral, cranial, and postcranial osteology of extant turtles of the United States.
