Abstract:

PURPOSE This technical note introduces coastal engineers and biologists to a working bibliography on sea turtles which has been entered into a personal computer bibliographic data base. The use of a personal computer allows for creating, searching, updating, and outputting of bibliographic information in various forms. INTRODUCTION Within the Corps of Engineers the need often arises to assess the potential effects of its dredging and construction activities in coastal environments on threatened and endangered sea turtles. To provide the most recent information on the distribution and life history requirements of the five sea turtle species which are found in the United States, an abstracted, indexed bibliography was created for personal computers. The following species of sea turtles were included in the bibliography green Chelonia mydas, loggerhead Caretta caretta, leatherback Dermochelys coriacea, hawksbill Eretmochelys imbricata, and Kemps ridley Lepidochelys kempi. Emphasis of the literature search was on U.S. and Caribbean populations however, other literature was included when the topic was pertinent to the U.S. sea turtle populations. The sources of literature were scientific journals, books, theses, newsletters, government reports, and other miscellaneous reports. Some reports were too extensive or too detailed for a brief abstract. These are indicated in the text as a book.
