The cephalopods (squid and octopus) are an integral part of ocean ecosystems, are heavily exploited as a major human food source in fisheries throughout the world and are important animals used in biological research, in areas such as neuroscience. Cephalopods, Ecology and Fisheries, an important and comprehensive reference work, covers all major aspects of these animals. Biology, reproduction and physiology are covered in depth, as well as much information on the species' interactions in marine ecosystems. A substantial section of the book covers squid and octopus fisheries throughout the world, including fishing methods, and assessment and management aspects of the world's major fisheries, and their catch trends.

Cephalopod Culture is the first compilation of research on the culture of cephalopods. It describes experiences of culturing different groups of cephalopods : nautiluses, sepioids (Sepia officinalis, Sepia pharaonis, Sepiella inermis, Sepiella japonica Euprymna hyllebergi, Euprymna tasmanica), squids (Loligo vulgaris, Doryteuthis opalescens, Sepioteuthis lessoniana) and octopods (Amphioctopus aegina, Enteroctopus megalocyathus, Octopus maya, Octopus mimus, Octopus minor, Octopus vulgaris, Robsonella fontaniana).

‘Cephalopod Culture’ also looks to the future. Recent breakthroughs, such as the successful rearing of large octopus hatchlings on a wholly artificial diet of squid paste, are highlighted, as are areas requiring further research; for example, there is a need to understand better the nutritional requirements of planktonic hatchlings so that appropriately enriched zooplankton can be raised as prey items. This makes this book not only an ideal introduction to cephalopod culture, but also a valuable resource for those already involved in this topic.

2007. 26cm. Pp.398. 194 photos & figures. Hardbound.

Cephalopods Present and Past brings together an international group of 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, a biogeographic study of clymeniid ammonoids throughout the world, the first record of a radula in baculite ammonoids, and an in-depth study of octopus ecology in Alaska. Presenting the wide diversity of cephalopods now and in the past, this volume is remarkable in its simultaneous treatment of both fossil and living forms.

2010, reprint with additions and corrections. 26cm. Pp.713. 235 photos & figures, 4 in colour. Hardbound.

A reprint of a classic book about Nautilus, first published in 1987, with an introductory chapter summarizing all of the work on Nautilus and its habitat since the publication of the first edition more than 20 years ago.

The surge in articles in the last two decades indicates an expanded interest in the subject, reflecting a renewed appreciation of the complexity and fragility of the marine habitat and its biota. In Nautilus, Second Edition the 37 chapters are written by 48 experts in the field and cover all aspects of this living fossil from its ecology to its embryology.

This volume also features new photos, including an impressive image of the first hatched Nautilus in captivity. Nautilus is an iconic animal in the marine realm and represents part of the diverse fauna of the Indo-Pacific. It is also a member of a lineage of shelled cephalopods dating back more than 400 million years. As a result, this volume will be relevant to the fields of marine science, evolutionary biology, and paleontology.
