"The remarkable adaptations of turtles, tortoises and terrapins have helped them survive for over 200 million years. They are the most wide-ranging of reptiles, found in deserts, forests and the open ocean. Today, turtles face threats ranging from destruction of their habitats to hunting for food and traditional medicine, and capture for the international pet trade. Under attack on land and sea, turtle populations are in decline around the world. The battle to save the world's turtles goes on. 'Turtles, Tortoises and Terrapins', a global survey of their biology and conservation, is a comprehensive resource fro anyone interested in these amazing and diverse reptiles and concerned about their precarious future."--P. [4] of cover.
