Abstract: This is the first in a series of technical notes concerning sensitive turtle groups. It provides an overview of environmentally sensitive turtle species and habitats as reported by resource managers at U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) reservoir projects. Current Federal and state legal protection status for U.S. turtle species are summarized and USACE Districts and reservoir projects potentially impacted by turtle conservation issues are identified. For each turtle species identified as potentially impacted by reservoir operations, life history is summarized and habitat requirements are described in subsequent technical notes (Technical Notes EMRRP-SI-02 through EMRRP-SI-08).
