Taxonomic Turtle Literature

 

TAXONOMIC TURTLE LITERATURE

 

The following Bibliography plans to list all primary descriptive taxonomic literature on turtles, i.e., new descriptions and namings of species and subspecies, genera, and suprageneric groupings, including both living modern turtles and fossil turtles. It will not list references that only include nomina nuda or ex errore misspellings. Papers that redescribe or revise existing taxa and/or simply provide new genus/species combinations are not listed here unless they also include new nomenclature. Downloadable pdf’s of these articles will be gradually accumulated and linked to this bibliography. Use of these pdf’s is strictly for non-commercial purposes for the use of individual researchers working on turtle systematics and conservation.

 

Though relatively complete for all modern turtle descriptions and older fossil turtle literature, the bibliography is not as up-to-date for recent fossil papers. We would be most grateful if any references missing from this list could be pointed out to us (RhodinCRF@aol.com), and pdf’s sent for inclusion here. Also, if you have pdf’s of any references listed here that do not yet have pdf’s associated with them, please share them so that we can post them here. Thank you.
