Australian waters are home to the highest diversity of cephalopods (squid, cuttlefish and octopus) found anywhere in the world. Highly significant ecologically, they are both top-level predators and prey for numerous vertebrates, including fishes, seals, cetaceans and seabirds.
This guide provides comprehensive coverage of 226 species, which represent over a quarter of the world's cephalopod fauna. With an emphasis on identification, this book includes keys, species descriptions, full-colour illustrations and distribution maps, as well as a summary of the biology and behaviour of cephalopods and fisheries information.
