207 LINDEMAN, PETER V. The Map Turtle And Sawback Atlas: Ecology, Evolution, Distribution, And Conservation.
University of Oklahoma Press, Norman: 2013. Volume 12 in the Animal Natural History Series. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Covering all facets of the biology of a little-known genus, Peter V. Lindeman's lavishly illustrated Map Turtle and Sawback Atlas is both a scientific treatise and an engaging introduction to a striking group of turtles. Map turtles and sawbacks, found in and along rivers from Texas to Florida and north to the Great Lakes, fascinate ecologists and evolutionary biologists. Over a short geologic time span, these turtles achieved exceptional biological diversification. Their diets are also exceptionally diverse, and a significant difference in size distinguishes males from females. Adult males are typically half or less the shell length of adult females, making map turtles and sawbacks the champions of sexual dimorphism among not only turtles but all four-legged vertebrates. Aesthetics also draw biologists and hobbyists to map turtles and sawbacks. While the male Sabine map turtle may look to some like a "pencil-necked geek," as the author puts it, markings on the shell, limbs, head, and neck make map turtles among the most attractive turtles on earth. Sawbacks feature a striking ridge down their shell. Few turtles show themselves off to such advantage. Photographs included here of Graptemys basking poses reveal to what improbable heights these turtles can scale, the spread-eagle sunning stances they adopt, the stacking of individuals on a crowded site, and the heads that warily watch the world above the waterline. In lively prose, Lindeman details the habitat, diet, reproduction and life history, natural history, and population abundance of each species. A section on conservation status summarizes official state, federal, and international designations for each species, along with efforts toward population management and recovery as well as habitat preservation. The author also outlines promising avenues for future research, ranging from the effects of global climate change on populations to strategies for combating expansion of the pet trade. Peter V. Lindeman is Professor of Biology at Edinboro University of Pennsylvania and author of numerous articles on map turtles and sawbacks.

University of Illinois Press, Urbana and Chicago: 2014. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
The Global Guide to Animal Protection An interdisciplinary compendium of worldwide animal rights issues Raising awareness of human indifference and cruelty toward animals, The Global Guide to Animal Protection includes more than 180 introductory articles that survey the extent of worldwide human exploitation of animals from a variety of perspectives. In addition to entries on often disturbing examples of human cruelty toward animals, the book provides inspiring accounts of attempts by courageous individuals--including Jane Goodall, Shirley McGreal, Birut Mary Galdikas, Bernard E. Rollin, and Roger Fouts--to challenge and change exploitative practices. As concern for animals and their welfare grows, this volume will be an indispensable aid to general readers, activists, scholars, and students interested in developing a keener awareness of cruelty to animals and considering avenues for reform. Also included is a special foreword by Archbishop Desmond Tutu, urging readers to seek justice and protection for all creatures, humans and animals alike. Andrew Linzey is a member of the Faculty of Theology at the University of Oxford and director of the Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics. Coeditor of the Journal of Animal Ethics, he has written or edited more than twenty books, including Animal Theology, Animals on the Agenda: Questions about Animals for Theology and Ethics, and Why Animal Suffering Matters: Philosophy, Theology, and Practical Ethics. "An excellent and trusted resource."--The Vegan "An intriguing array of eye-opening information, covering economic, legal, religious, ecological, moral, and biomedical viewpoints."--Choice "This broadly appealing multidisciplinary work will interest scholars in the sciences and humanities as well as general readers committed to animal welfare issues. While it draws attention to many contemptible forms of animal abuse, it also offers glimmers of hope by highlighting the positive work of numerous animal advocates who work to protect our nonhuman cohabitants of planet Earth."--Marc R. Fellenz, author of The Moral Menagerie: Philosophy and Animal Rights "Even when faced with urgent human problems, we should not overlook the issue of justice to animals. . . . This Global Guide reflects a growing worldwide sensitivity to animals and a developing sense that--as a matter of justice--they deserve our compassion and respect. It has my warm support."--Archbishop Desmond Tutu, from the book's foreword
