The loggerhead turtle is named for its large head, which supports powerful jaw muscles that enable them to feed on hard-shelled prey, such as whelks and conch. Loggerheads are the most abundant species of sea turtle that nests in the United States. Juvenile and adult loggerheads live in U.

The Turtles of Mexico
Richard C. Richard Dick C. Not many scientists can say that they have altered the course of an entire field of study; Dick Vogt can, not once, but now twice! Astoundingly, he has followed up this incredible career-defining achievement with yet another—his most recent work on chelonian vocalization has again turned the turtle world upside down and is setting a new path for how we practice turtle conservation. This is the first documented evidence of post-hatching parental care in chelonians.
Vogt received his PhD in from the University of Wisconsin-Madison , his dissertation focused on the systematics and ecology of the False Map Turtle. In , Vogt was part of a group of authors who published a paper  in the Journal of Comparative Psychology that described findings which they considered to be the " In , this research was expanded to show that the Pig-nosed Turtle also emits underwater sounds. In , Vogt was part of the assessment panel which determined the critically endangered status of the Central American River Turtle. In , the impact of Vogt's research was highlighted when he was awarded the 9th Annual Behler Turtle Conservation Award. In May , a newly identified endangered Mexican turtle species, Kinosternon vogti , was named for Vogt, to honour his more than 40 years in the field, scientific impact and mentorship of younger scientists. During his acceptance address, one image of a student in a bikini and 3 in shorts were shown, in his presentation these pictures were censored by conference staff without informing Vogt, and the photographs were criticized by other members in attendance as they believed that these students were naked or dressing inappropriately because these girls were wearing clothes that this patriarchy decided was inappropriate.

The Turtles of Mexico is the first comprehensive guide to the biology, ecology, evolution, and distribution of more than fifty freshwater and terrestrial turtle taxa found in Mexico. Legler and Vogt draw on more than fifty years of fieldwork to elucidate the natural history of these species. The volume includes an extensive introduction to turtle anatomy, taxonomy, phylogeny, biogeography, and physiology. A key to the turtles of Mexico is included along with individual species accounts featuring geographic distribution maps and detailed color illustrations. Specific topics discussed for each species include habitat, diet, feeding behavior, reproduction, predators, parasites, growth and ontogeny, sexual dimorphism, growth rings, economic use, conservation, legal protection, and taxonomic studies. This book is a complete reference for scientists, conservationists, and professional and amateur enthusiasts who wish to study Mexican turtles. John M.
Sea-level rise, drought and water diversion can all lead to rapid salinization of freshwater habitats, especially in coastal areas. Increased water salinities can in turn alter the geographic distribution and ecology of freshwater species including turtles. The physiological consequences of salinization for freshwater turtles, however, are poorly known. Here, we compared the osmoregulatory response of two geographically separate populations of the freshwater Western Pond Turtle Actinemys marmorata —a species declining across its range in western North America—to three constant salinities: 0. Furthermore, estuarine marsh turtles maintained plasma osmolalities within 1 SD of their mean field osmolalities over the 2-week exposure, whereas freshwater creek turtles exceeded their field values within the first few days after exposure to elevated salinities.

The Turtles of Mexico: Land and Freshwater Forms
This book concerns the diverse chelonian fauna of Mexico: 15 families, 14 genera, 38 species, and 66 terminal taxa of freshwater and terrestrial chelonians occurring within the political boundaries of Mexico Los Estados Unidos de Mexico. These represent all of the families of nonmarine cryptodires that occur in the Western Hemisphere. The authors of this book hereinafter JML and RCV have a cumulative experience of nearly a century with chelonian studies in general and with Mexican turtles in particular. Smith and Smith gave complete and accurate synonymies for all Mexican testudinates and we make no attempt to do so. The current book makes no significant taxonomic decisions; it attempts to present an account of the species occurring in Mexico with easily used keys and distribution maps, and to cover what is known of their natural history.
По мере того как они удалялись от двери, свет становился все более тусклым, и вскоре они оказались в полной темноте. Единственным освещением в шифровалке был разве что свет звезд над их головами, едва уловимое свечение проникало также сквозь разбитую стеклянную стену Третьего узла. Стратмор шагнул вперед, нащупывая ногой место, где начинались ступеньки узенькой лестницы.
