About this book

Australia is home to a diverse freshwater turtle fauna including more than 25 species and an array of side-necked turtle subspecies. The biology and ecology of Australian freshwater turtles is complex and a number of species are of particular conservation concern. Many affected species are found on Australia's east coast, where the river systems are most heavily modified due to the pressures of development.

Freshwater Turtles of Australia is a beautifully illustrated and comprehensive update of John Cann's highly respected Australian Freshwater Turtles (1998). It reviews new information on the biology of Australian chelid turtles, presents recent perspectives and insights into their history and taxonomy, and provides an introduction to the freshwater turtles of New Guinea and Irian Jaya to Australia's north. This landmark work brings together years of research and experience and will serve as an important reference for researchers, academics and herpetologists for many years to come.

Biography

John Cann is a pioneer in the study of Australian turtles and is acknowledged worldwide for his achievements in the field. His lifetime fascination with these animals has resulted in works including Tortoises of Australia (1978), Australian Freshwater Turtles (1998) and Freshwater Turtles (2008).

Ross Sadlier, long-time friend and colleague of Cann, was a Collection Manager in Herpetology at the Australian Museum for 35 years prior to his retirement. During his research career he spent significant time in the field, mainly in northern and eastern Australia, and described over 70 new lizard species.
