A new section summarizes developments and primary literature for fourteen areas of sea turtle biology and conservation - nesting; hatchling orientation; the early pelagic stage; telemetry and behavior; molecular genetic studies; applied and behavioral endocrinology; metabolism, physiology, and thermoregulation; diseases; temperature and sex ratio; growth and age; population models and structure; the current status of marine turtles worldwide; anthropogenic threats; and headstarting.
