Testudines and Crocodilia at risk

Testudines (turtles, terrapins, etc.) and Crocodilia (crocodiles and alligators) are at risk due to today's Athropocene. These two groups together hold 375 species. A new study by Rodríguez-Caro, R.C., Graciá, E., Blomberg, S.P. et al. suggests that conservation programs with a focus on "preserving functional diversity of life history strategies jointly with the phylogenetic representativity of these highly threatened groups" are most important to keeping this crisis at bay.
