Loggerhead Sea Turtles brings together, for the first time, international experts to synthesize the knowledge of Loggerhead biology and conservation and sets the stage for future ecological, biological, and conservation research. Highly detailed coverage includes diet, growth, nesting, migration, habitat selection, and conservation.
