Development of the Sea Turtle Bibliographic Database has been supported by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Sandra MacPherson, Earl Possardt, and Jack Woody), U.S. National Marine Fisheries Service (Barbara Schroeder, Charles Oravetz, and Terry Henwood), and the Japanese Sea Turtle Association (Naoki Kamezaki). Marjorie Carr, C. Kenneth Dodd, Greg Forbes, John R. Hendrickson, David Owens, and Anders Rhodin (The Chelonian Research Foundation) have provided valuable reference collections for our use.
