CHELONIAN CONSERVATION AND BIOLOGY (ISSN 1071-8443) is an international peer-reviewed scientific journal of turtle and tortoise research and also the combined journal of the IUCN/SSC Tortoise and Freshwater Turtle Specialist Group and IUCN/SSC Marine Turtle Specialist Group of the IUCN—The World Conservation Union/Species Survival Commission. Manuscript submissions are welcome from any individuals, and are not limited to members of the Specialist Groups. The journal is published semi-annually by Chelonian Research Foundation in partnership with Allen Press and its Alliance Communications Group. Manuscripts may cover any aspects of turtle and tortoise research, with a preference for conservation or biology. Manuscripts dealing with conservation biology, systematic relationships, chelonian diversity, geographic distribution, natural history, ecology, reproduction, morphology and natural variation, population status, husbandry, community conservation initiatives, and human exploitation or conservation management issues are of special interest. Either full- length original research articles or shorter notes and field reports are welcome. Commentaries and reviews of interest to the turtle conservation and research community are also welcome. All manuscripts will be submitted for peer-review by the Editors, a selected member of the Editorial Review Board, and independent outside review. Submit manuscripts electronically directly to A.G.J. Rhodin at the e-mail address above. Instructions for manuscript submission and detailed guidelines for authors are published on the inside back cover of this journal.
