Hematologic investigations have been used successfully to diagnose disease and assess the physiological status of chelonians. Here, the microstructure, ultrastructure, development, and function of chelonian blood cells are summarized, and factors that affect hematologic results are reviewed. The limited body of chelonian hematology research is discussed, and recommendations for future work are provided. Source

Chelonian Conservation and Biology | Year: 2011

Hematologic data, morphology, and ultrastructure of peripheral blood cells of 5 juvenile olive ridley turtles (Lepidochelys olivacea) were evaluated. The following blood cells were identified: mature and immature erythrocytes, heterophils, large and small eosinophils, basophils, lymphocytes, monocytes, and thrombocytes. Unique blood cell features of olive ridley turtles that are useful for health evaluations within sea turtle care and conservation were identified in hematologic, morphological, and ultrastructural studies. © 2011 Chelonian Research Foundation.
