Abstract

This study examined the effect of variations in the water characteristics (dissolved oxygen, pH, conductivity and temperature) of the biotopes of freshwater turtles (Emys orbicularis and Mauremys rivulata) collected from different localities in Canakkale, Turkey on the blood parameters and put forward the variations in blood parameters for survival during wet and dry periods.
