This definitive work, based on collections made throughout the world, represents the collaborative effort of most of the world's experts on living cephalopods. The book provides detailed instructions for collecting, transporting, examining, and identifying the lower 'beaks' or mandibles of cephalopods, including almost all known living genera. The many new illustrations, keys, descriptions, and measurements mark this book as a major advance over previous handbooks and make it an essential reference work.
