Turtles are among the most universally adored organisms. They exhibit an instantly recognizable morphology, yet lead lives that are cryptic to the casual observer, thus questions naturally surface regarding all sorts of aspects of their biology and history. In the absence of informed experience, mythic explanations have arisen and even become entrenched culturally, often doing no favor to the turtles or to turtle biologists who must combat such nonsense on behalf of the animals. Into this informational void appears this volume prepared by the expert authors, with the assistance of many knowledgeable colleagues.
