Summary
Sea Tu rtles of the World provides an in-depth look at these prehistoric looking reptiles that have lived on earth longer than 210 million years, surviving two waves of mass extinction. Author and photographer Doug Perrine guides the reader through the fascinating life-cycle of the sea turtle, from their harrowing dash from the nest to the ocean as vulnerable hatchlings through the many years spent at sea during maturation, to sexual maturity, reproduction, and migration. Perrine describes the evolution of the sea turtle, its anatomy, events that lead to its endangerment, and attempts to save the sea turtle. Table of Contents: Origin and Anatomy, Mating Behavior and Reproduction, The Lost Decade, Growing Up, The Incredible Journey, Sea Turtles and Humans, Families and Species, Watching Sea Turtles, Appendices, Bibliography, Index. Detailed descriptions of the Green Sea Turtle, Loggerhead Turtle, Hawksbill Turtle, Olive Ridley Turtle, Kemp's Ridley Turtle, Australian Flatback Turtle, and the Leatherback Turtle are included, as is a chapter on watching sea turtles from land and from the water. Annotation. Perrine, a writer and photographer specializing in marine life, offers an in-depth look at the natural history of sea turtles and details efforts to preserve them in this guide for general readers. Those who would like to watch sea turtles in their natural habitat will find information on the best land and water locations for observing them. A wealth of color photos highlights species diversity and the sea turtle's relationships with fish (and divers)
