SPECIES LINK PAGE
Caretta caretta - Loggerhead turtle:
/ Animalia / Craniata / Reptilia
/ Cheloniidae / Caretta /
This section is currently predominantly used in Wildpro to link different data types and demonstrate inter-relationships. Although it identifies that taxonomic interrelationships of species (see "header") it does not currently contain detailed information on the bird species itself. As WILDPro is developed, we will gradually convert these pages into full Species pages.
The taxonomy of reptiles is still under review and "A Complete Guide to Scientific and Common Names of Reptiles and Amphibians of the World" by Norman Frank and Erica Ramus (B87) has been chosen as the primary reference. The taxonomic structure will be amended when new editions or complete references are identified by the scientific world as the recognized primary references for taxonomy.
