The Turtles of Russia and Other Ex-Soviet Unions provides information on the tortoises and freshwater turtles inhabiting the territories of the former Soviet Union, utilising the knowledge acquired over generations by scientists. For the first time, readers in the Western Hemisphere have access to such a comprehensive overview. Zoological data had been collected, as well as data on keeping and breeding of animals, data on diseases and treatments, ecological problems, nature reserves, conservational problems, pet trade and other anthropogenic factors. Animals and their different habitat types occurring in this large and diverse territory are shown in many colour photographs.
