Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Millions of sea turtles once roamed the earths oceans. Within the past five centuries, trade in sea turtle meat, eggs, shells, oil, and leather has driven almost every species to the brink of extinction. Explore the world of the sea turtle in this engaging book. Learn their general characteristics, how they navigate underwater, who their predators are, what human threats exist, and where conservation efforts are being made worldwide. Jeff Ripple profiles every species of sea turtle from the loggerhead to the leatherback. More than 60 breath-taking photographs capture these fascinating creatures underwater and on land.

Book News Annotation:

Traces the thinking about the nature and behavior of time through ancient and medieval philosophy to its demise during the Renaissance. Then describes the modern resurrection of temporal logic under the ministrations of A. N. Prior and others, and its applications in computer science and the study of natural languages. Interweaves the linguistic, philosophical, and computational aspects throughout. Assumes a background in formal logic.
