Morphological Variation in Turtles of the Genus Pseudemys (Testudines: Emydidae) from Central Atlantic Drainages


Abstract:
Cooter and redbelly turtles are aquatic species that inhabit the southeastern United States. Taxonomic relationships in the genus Pseudemys have been unclear due to an extensive history of species-subspecies revisions. This study analyzed and compared morphological characteristics of various turtle species in North Carolina and Virginia drainage systems.
