Emys orbicularis Testudinidae Testudo hermanni Caretta caretta Chelydra serpentina The ecological aspects related to the reproduction of turtles and other reptiles, which present incubation temperature-dependent sex determination, play a crucial role in their population equilibrium. For such species, the sex ratio of hatchlings is controlled by the nest temperature during incubation. To understand how the nest site characteristics affect temperature is essential for considering the factors which control the ecology, reproduction and distribution of turtles. In this paper, we have made a review on the way turtles reproduce and how the physical environment affects reproduction.
