Sinopsis

With their large brains, elaborate sense organs and complex behaviour, cephalopods are among the world's most highly evolved invertebrates. This second edition summarises the wealth of exciting new research data stemming from over five hundred papers published since the first volume appeared. It adopts a comparative approach to causation, function, development and evolution as it explores cephalopod behaviour in natural habitats and the laboratory. Extensive colour and black-and-white photography illustrates various aspects of cephalopod behaviour to complement the scientific analysis. Covering the major octopus, squid and cuttlefish species, as well as the shelled Nautilus, this is an essential resource for undergraduate and advanced students of animal behaviour, as well as researchers new to cephalopods, in fields such as neuroscience and conservation biology. By highlighting the gaps in current knowledge, the text looks to inform and to stimulate further study of these enigmatic and beautiful animals.

Presents a fully updated overview of cephalopod behaviour in the sea and in the laboratory and covers all the major groups, including octopuses, squids and cuttlefish, as well as the relic Nautilus
Incorporates the very latest developments in cephalopod research including analysis of more than five hundred new papers published since the first edition
Richly illustrated in full colour to highlight the wide-ranging aspects of cephalopod behaviour, including camouflage and communication
