: Interesting topic! Salt glands are a common adaptation to marine environments that appears to have evolved independently in many lineages. There is a good deal of literature on this topic for turtle physiology. Sea turtles and Diamondback terrapins (Malaclemys sp.) evolved salt glands convergently. Look for papers by Dunson. I will try to add papers/authors as I come across them. good luck.

: : Hello, im a third year animal science student in the UK, and i have chosen to do my independant study on the role of salt glands in the osmoregulation of salt water crocdiles (crocodilus porosus). I have found quite a bit of information on why they are required, but just wondered whether anyone knows of any good journals which may have covered this subject, or other sites on the internet etc. Basically i have to cover everything from evolution of the glands, reasons behind them, their purpose, and how they function etc, as well as comparing them with other marine creatures.

: : i am very grateful to anyone who can help me here,
: : Thanks,
