A synopsis of the ecology and status of the western pond turtle Clemmys
marmorata in 1991.
Home ranges and movements of wood turtles, Clemmys
insculpta, in central Pennsylvania.
Occurrence of a colonial protozoan on the Western Pond Turtle, Clemmys
Comparative demography of Clemmys
marmota populations in the Trinity River of California in the context of dam-induced alterations.
The record for Oro Grande north of Victorville is either an invalid record for the species, or more likely, another example of a San Bernardino Mountain species (such as the pond turtle, Clemmys
marmorata and the western toad, Bufo Boreas) that had been carried accidentally to the Victorville area (where water and lush riparian vegetation occur) by one of many floods of the Mojave River.
Some ecological parameters of the wood turtle, Clemmys
insculpta, in southeastern Pennsylvania.
In the Northern hemisphere, Clemmys
guttata (Schneider 1792) engages in this type of behavior as a way of protecting itself from the cold during the least favorable periods of the winter (Litzgus et al.
Bury RB (1979) Review of the ecology and conservation of the bog turtle Clemmys
Of note is the presence at the site of the spotted turtle, Clemmys
guttata, as this species is listed as being "of special consideration" by the state of Georgia.
Fine structure of the dorsal epithelium of the tongue of the Japanese terrapin, Clemmys
japonica (Cheloia, Emydinae).
Such might be the case for Clemmys
marmorata, the terrapin usually known as the western pond turtle, the single native fresh-water turtle west of the Sierra Nevada.
My favorite turtles were the wood turtles, Clemmys
insculpta, seven or eight inches long, that have almost disappeared from New England now, with their sculptured carapaces, like Cellini's metalwork, and salmon-red legs, which I would watch breed in the stream in the spring, but that roamed the fields until hibernation time, when they'd return again to the streambed's leaves and mud.
