About this book

Reprint of the 1979 edition. Encyclopedia of Turtles is the truly comprehensive standard reference for all living turtle species and subspecies. Using a family by family approach, each species and subspecies is discussed separately. Almost all of the species are illustrated in color or black and white, as are many of the subspecies. A bibliography accompanies each family account. Other sections cover fossil records, anatomy, and conservation. Lists of all described genera, a checklist of living species and subspecies, and a glossary round out the book.
