"Synthesizing all known research on this remarkable animal, Diamonds in the Marsh is the first full-scale natural history of the diamond-back terrapin. Focusing on the northern diamondback, Barbara Brennessel examines its evolution, physiology, adaptation, behavior, growth patterns, life span, genetic diversity, land use, reproduction, and early years. She also discusses its relationship to humans, first as an important food source from colonial times through the nineteenth century, and more recently as a cultural icon, frequently depicted in Native American art and design. She concludes with a look at contemporary hazards to the terrapin, and urges continued study of this marvelous creature."--Jacket.
