China 2013, geb., Großformat, 286 Seiten. “Intending to be an academic and practical guide to taxonomy of Chinese Chelonians, the book has been written by Zhou Ting and Li Pipeng concisely, and illustrated with exquisite pictures. In the first part, the ancient Chinese knowledge, origin and evolution, biological properties, species diversity, taxonomic terms, and measuring methods of turtles were introduced. Then, as a main content, 36 species of Chinese turtles, including sea turtles, freshwater turtles and tortoises (terrestrial turtles) were illustrated from taxonomy and life history, farming and breeding status, and protected levels and population status. In the third part, the hybridization, Chinese natural and artificial hybrids of turtles were reported. For the control of invasive turtles and conservation of Chinese turtles, 20 exotic turtles, which are popular in wild, markets and farms in China were introduced, and the Chinese turtle resources and conservation status were reviewed at last. More than 1000 beautiful pictures help readers to understand the turtles deeply in a full range. Cited references, indexes of turtles in Chinese and scientific names will make the reader easily to check the turtles and the referred papers.” Neben den vielen schönen Fotos beeindruckt natürlich auch die weltweit umfassendste Zusammenstellung an Schildkröten-Hybriden.
