Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Relying on the latest analytical techniques, this all-embracing new reference offers comprehensive coverage of the development, evolution, and morphology of both fossil and living cephalopods. In 34 in-depth chapters a group of 51 international neontologists and peleontologists offer and opverview of current methods, data, analyses, and interpretations, and posit suggestions for future research. With its unparalleled combination of first-rate contributions on living and fossil cephalopods, this book provides researchers and advanced students in paleontology, invertebrate zoology, evolutionary biology, and allied disciplines with a trove of recent data and authoritative interpretations that will immeasurably benefit their own studies.

Book News Annotation:

The proceedings of an international symposium held in Granada, Spain, in July 1996. The 34 papers include discussions of ontogenetic patterns and processes from an evolutionary perspective as revealed by the reproductive system of octopods, the lower beaks of coleoids and ammonites, and the arm crown of the coleoids; ultrastructure analysis to describe cell types in the epidermis of the ventral funnel and mantle of adult Octopus vulgaris, interpret fine structure and function, and evaluate the similarity of the species with other molluscs; and possible prints of the hyponome and crop-content in Lower Campanian Placenticeratidae in relation to rollmarks and closers of minute brachiopods. The collection is generously illustrated in black and white.
