Like nearly all cephalopods
, these octopuses are strictly semelparous, meaning they breed once and then die.
We were drawn by how successful cephalopods
are at changing their skin texture, so we studied and drew inspiration from the muscles that allow cephalopods
to control their texture, and implemented these ideas into a method for controlling the shape of soft, stretchable materials.
2012; Collins etal, 2015; Kerwin and Nyholm, 2017), the rapidly expanding volume of information on cephalopod
genomes (Zhang et al.
This exciting and extremely rare intertidal encounter has prompted a formal report on the sighting and also an overview of the biology of this species and of cephalopods
An annotated and illustrated catalogue of cephalopod
species known to date.
Therefore, it is necessary to construct a correct picture of genetic structure of cephalopods
for rational management of exploitation (Shaw 2003).
This study suggested that cephalopod
species in Iskenderun Bay are not recommended for human consumption.
remains, the most abundant were G.
Identical colour patterns observed in one specimen of Dawsonoceras from Gotland and one specimen from Wales is the first evidence of the stability of colouration in straight-shelled cephalopod
populations from different Palaeozoic palaeocontinents.
Predation on jellyfish by the cephalopod
Figure 9 shows that mean intake of mercury for the Vietnamese population due to shellfish consumption estimated in our study is lower than the one for the population due to bivalve, crustacean, and cephalopod
consumption in Japan (Nakagawa et al.
In recent years cephalopods
from around the world have been enlisted to try and predict everything from World Cup football results to the winners of the Superbowl - with varying success.
