About this book

Language: English

Excellent monograph which developed out of research into the evolution and ecology of the animals as part of the Seychelles Giant Tortoise Conservation Project. The Indian Ocean tortoises are highly vulnerable but also resilient, as their recovery on Aldabra has shown.
