5.0 out of 5 stars THE new book on US Turtles, April 25, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Turtles of the Southeast (Wormsloe Foundation Nature Book) (Paperback)
"Turtles of the Southeast" is a great book for many audiences, from those just casually curious about turtles to those who work with them every day as a profession.

The book's layout is very useable. Turtle species are arranged according to the kind of habitat in which they are most commonly seen. Photo quality is generally very good, although the placement of the wood turtle plastron photo will make comparative identification tricky. Photos never do well when placed between pages. But, you see, it must be petty critiques as this if there are to be any for this book. This is the kind of book needed on every bookstore shelf to get the layperson excited about the great richness of turtles we should better enjoy outdoors in the southern United States - a more tranquil option than our current allowance for the exportation of hundreds of thousands of wild-collected turtles to Asian food markets each year from southern states including AR, LA, TX, OK, FL, and GA.

The range maps may not be so accurate as county maps or dot locality maps, but they'll get the general idea across. Not all subspecies are pictured such that identification will come readily, but the text descriptions will fill in for this. Habitat photographs, such a rarity in many publications that prefer to separate turtles from their environments, are in abundant supply here. As an added treat, the end of this book briefly showcases every species of turtle native to the US but occurring completely outside of the range considered in this book.

This book's construct is great. It's got stiff boards like the Sibley Guide to Birds and other such softcovers built for USE. Binding is very solid and seems as though it'll hold up for many busy years. "Turtles of the Southeast" is one of the nicest general-audience turtle books to date, and it's priced such that everyone who goes outdoors should enjoy a copy.

This review is from: Turtles of the Southeast (Wormsloe Foundation Nature Book) (Paperback)
This is a great field guide. It gives range maps, and solid information about each species, habitat, and natural history. Good photos are included, and it is very user friendly. It is especially good, because the species list covers a more localized area (the Southeast), and it narrows down the focus of possible species.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a Field Guide, July 5, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Turtles of the Southeast (Wormsloe Foundation Nature Book) (Paperback)
This is not a field guide. However, it is a wonderfully brief synopsis of turtle species found in the Southeast. It is well illustrated, easy to use, and very informative, especially for a delightfully concise package. I also have, and enjoy very much Snakes of the Southeast; Frogs & Toads of the Southeast; and, Lizards & Crocodilians of the Southeast. They are all really good books.
