Biology and conservation of sea turtles
Still the most comprehensive review of the subject, Biology and Conservation of Sea Turtles is now updated to reflect significant advances in sea turtle research. A new section summarizes developments and primary literature for fourteen areas of sea turtle biology and conservation - nesting; hatchling orientation; the early pelagic stage; telemetry and behavior; molecular genetic studies; applied and behavioral endocrinology; metabolism, physiology, and thermoregulation; diseases; temperature and sex ratio; growth and age; population models and structure; the current status of marine turtles worldwide; anthropogenic threats; and headstarting.
