This book brings together international scientists who focus on present-day and fossil cephalopods, ranging broadly from Paleozoic ammonoids to today's octopods. It covers systematics and evolution; hard- and soft part morphology; and ecology, biogeography, and taphonomy. The book also includes new evidence for the existence of an ink sac in fossil ammonoids and features the first record of an in-depth study of octopus ecology in Alaska.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"Cephalopods Present and Past is a well-edited volume whose content is based on a 2004 conference. ... The chapters, written by an international group of scientists, essentially constitute review papers in a specialized subset of paleontology. As such, these chapters will be required reading for specialists. ... This book will be important for libraries that maintain a research collection in invertebrate paleontology or invertebrate zoology. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students through professionals." (P. K. Strother, CHOICE, Vol. 45 (11), August, 2008)
