Book Description

9 Dec 1996 CRC Marine Science (Book 12)
Sea turtles have existed for millions of years, making them fascinating subjects of study. In the last 20 years, the science of sea turtle biology has expanded at an exponential rate, leading to major advances in many areas. This book synthesizes the results of these advances and focuses on how these endangered marine reptiles operate in, adapt to, and are dependent upon particular features of their marine environment. New technology in data gathering, such as DNA analyses, remote sensing, and physiological monitoring techniques, has led to a much greater understanding of the biology of the sea turtle at all stages of their life history.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This was a long awaited buy, because this book is very specific and is, to the best of my knowledge, out of print. The book was all I coud expect, it was a very good surprise. Thank you.
