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
