Praise for the previous edition:
"An excellent source for research. Highly recommended."—The Book Report

While reptiles often receive an ambivalent reaction from the public, turtles and tortoises are surely the exception. People have kept them as pets for centuries and their affection for these creatures with attractively colored shells is reflected in art, literature, and popular culture.

Turtles and Tortoises of the World fills a significant gap in available literature on the chelonia—turtles, tortoises, and terrapins. Noted naturalist David Alderton presents a comprehensive account of these fascinating creatures, featuring recent chelonian research. The information on lifestyle, habitat, distribution, and human involvement is clear and easy to read. Enhanced by informative maps, as well as many color and black-and-white photographs, this volume emphasizes turtles' and tortoises' diversity of form and adaptability for survival.
