In-depth information is provided on the physiological systems of sea turtles, causes and sources of illness and injury, diagnostic procedures, and medical and surgical treatments.

Prior to the publication of this unique work, the sea turtle community relied on scattered chapters and papers to obtain information on sea turtle care and rehabilitation. Now, this information can be found all in one place.
