Abstract

Turtles and tortoises play important., albeit incompletely understood and largely unappreciated, roles in both the ecology of their ecosystem, and in the economy and sociology of the human cultures that interact with these enigmatic creatures, South-east Asia is home to a high diversity of freshwater turtle species. However, none of the species knows from Borneo have been studied at length and consequently, little is know of their ecology. The present work is the first ecological study of Amyda cartilaginea not only in Borneo, but Malaysia.
