The Bulletin de la Société Herpétologique de France (Bulletin of the Herpetological Society of France) has published, in its issue number 139-140 of December 2011, the proceedings of the first Colloque sur les Tortues marines en France métropolitaine et d’outre-mer (Symposium on Marine Turtles in metropolitan France and overseas departments): Bull. Soc. Herp. Fr. (2011) 139-140.
This informative 176-page publication, written mostly in French with abstracts in English, compiles 14 presentations made during the symposium which was held in Paris from 20-22 January 2010. The symposium itself was a unique gathering of French marine turtle expertise from across the globe, and it merits repetition in a similar format in the coming years.
