About this product

Please note: this software was written and designed before 64-bit operating systems (OS) were introduced. If you are running a 64-bit OS, such as a 64-bit version of Windows Vista or Windows 7, this software may not function. Please note that suppliers do not accept returns of sealed software that has been opened, and NHBS can therefore not refund such items. If in doubt, please contact customer services or the software supplier to enquire after compatibility before purchasing this item.

In cooperation with the Smithsonian Institution Press, Prof. Carl H. Ernst and ETI editor Ruud G.M. Altenburg have updated and extended Ernst and Barbour's standard work "Turtles of the World" (1989). This DVD-ROM edition features multiple color photographs of essentially every recognized species of turtle and tortoise in the world. About 40 new species were added and the taxonomy has been completely revised up to December, 1997. Different modules within the program allow for hyper-linked browsing through higher taxa, species, and lower taxa, with sections on recognition, distribution, geographic variation, habitat, natural history, and conservation status. The interactive geographic information system MapIt plots distributions of selected species on a set of quadrant maps, allowing for different scaled maps, the ability to compare distributions of pairs of species, map species density per quadrant, and check listings of species included per quadrant. An interactive key allows you to quickly identify turtles. All text is hyperlinked to an illustrated glossary covering 1000+ scientific and etymological terms.

A large number of turtle researchers from all over the world worked with ETI Bioinformatics to ensure that the texts and distributions are as accurate as possible. These specialists also made it possible for over 1400 images to be incorporated, including colour pictures of virtually every (sub)species and some species which have not yet been described.

Compared to the CD-ROM version 1.2.1, this version has the same content, but has updated software to make the programme compatible with the latest Mac and Windows operating systems.
