Edition Chimaira, Quarto, laminated boards, colour photographs.
The fourth of four volumes. This volume is a portrayal of the chelonians of East and South Asia. Most members of the families Geomydidae and Trionychidae inhabit the geographic range covered in this book – from Pakistan to Japan and from Russia to Indonesia. The diversity of the South and East Asian chelonian fauna is even more enriched by numerous forms that have meanwhile been identified as hybrids. A great many of these forms are portrayed in a separate chapter.
