A late Carboniferous coleoid cephalopod from the Mazon Creek Lagerstätte (USA), with a radula, arm hooks, mantle tissues, and ink / Larisa A. Doguzhaeva, Royal H. Mapes and Harry Mutvei -- 7. On the species status of Spirula spirula (Linné, 1758) (Cephalopoda) : a new approach based on divergence of amino acid sequences between the Canaries and New Caledonia / Kerstin Warnke -- 8. Understanding ammonoid sutures : new insight into the dynamic evolution of Paleozoic suture morphology / Emily G. Allen -- 9. Cameral membranes in Carboniferous and Permian goniatites : description and relationship to pseudosutures / Kristin Polizzotto, Neil H. Landman and Royal H. Mapes -- 10. Soft-tissue attachment of middle Triassic Ceratitida from Germany / Christian Klug [and others] -- 11. The preservation of body tissues, shell, and mandibles in the ceratitid ammonoid Austrotrachyceras (late Triassic), Austria / Larisa A. Doguzhaeva [and others] -- 12. Connecting ring ultrastructure in the Jurassic ammonoid Quenstedtoceras with discussion on mode of life of ammonoids / Harry Mutvei and Elena Dunca -- 13. Jaws and radula of Baculites from the Upper Cretaceous (Campanian) of North America / Neil H. Landman, Neal L. Larson and William A. Cobban -- 14. Ultrastructural analyses on the conotheca of the genus Belemnotheutis (Belemnitida: Coleoidea) / Dirk Fuchs [and others] -- 15. New data on the clymeniid faunas of the Urals and Kazakhstan / Svetlana Nikolaeva -- 16. Deformities in the late Callovian (late Middle Jurassic) ammonite fauna from Saratov, Russia / Neal L. Larson -- 17. Biogeography of Kutch ammonites during the latest Jurassic (Tithonian) and a global paleobiogeographic overview / Subhendu Bardhan, Sabyasachi Shome and Pinaki Roy -- 18. Ammonite touch marks in Upper Cretaceous (Cenomanian-Santonian) deposits of the Western Interior Seaway / Neil H. Landman and William A. Cobban -- 19. Some data on the distribution and biology of the boreal clubhook squid Moroteuthis robusta (Verrill, 1876) (Onychoteuthidae, Teuthida) in the northwest Pacific / Alexei M. Orlov -- 20. Habitat ecology of Enteroctopus dofleini from middens and live prey surveys in Prince William Sound, Alaska / D. Scheel, A. Lauster and T.L.S. Vincent.
Summary: This book brings together an international group of scientists focusing on present-day and fossil cephalopods, ranging broadly from Paleozoic ammonoids to today's octopods. It has three general sections dealing with: systematics and evolution; descriptions of hard- and soft part morphology; and ecology, biogeography, and taphonomy. Several highlights include 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.
