This book collects scholarly research regarding the leatherback turtle, including its biology, habitat, and life cycle. The text is divided into five distinct parts, Biology, Life History and Reproduction, Population Status and Trends, From Egg to Adulthood, and The Future of the Leatherback Turtle. These parts, in turn, contain essays and research from a myriad of scholars and scientists in the field. Of special interest are the essays discussing climate change and the impact of fisheries on the leatherback population. An interesting collection of drawings, x-rays, photographs, and anatomical pictures are included. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
