dc.description.abstract Atoll Research Bulletin, no. 589 : Phoenix Island "Sea Turtles of the Phoenix Islands, 2000-2002." Balazs (1973) has written the only recent report on marine turtles of the Phoenix Islands, summarizing a small literature from observations in the 19th and 20th Century, his own observations on a 7-day trip to Kanton atoll in 1973 and anecdotal information from residents on Kanton Island. At that time only green turtles (listed as Chelonia sp.) were confirmed to be present in the Phoenix Islands with additional reports of a turtle “with distinct ridges on the carapace” which Balazs did not venture to name. Balazs notes that reviews at the time did not list the Phoenix Islands within the distribution records of turtles across the Pacific. en_US
