Summary
"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"--
