Introduction:

The following report gives the results of field work conducted on the wood turtle (Clemmys insculpta) during 1985. This report is to be considered as a companion to the First Year Report and not as a compilation for both years. Much of the first year information is not repeated. Naturally, however, general knowledge and a few details from the first year are incorporated as appropriate.

Sections 3 through 12 emphasize work conducted in Minnesota for the combined purposes of general survey and feasibility survey for establishment of a refuge for wood turtles. Sections 13 through 16 focus on survey of the XXXXXX and on the possible relationship of the survey results to recreational development.
