Cephalopod definition: any marine mollusc of the class Cephalopoda, characterized by well-developed head and | Meaning, pronunciation, translations and examples. Few groups of animals are as dazzling and diverse as the cephalopods, a group of around living marine species that includes squid, octopuses, cuttlefish, and nautiluses. In honor of Cephalopod Week, we put together a list of six of the most amazing, unusual, and little-known cephalopod species.

To accomplish all these feats, you’d need to be a cephalopod, a member of a group that contains squids, octopuses, nautiluses and cuttlefishes. Cephalofacts. Cephalopods are a class of invertebrates described in the phylum Mollusca. In laymen-speak the members of this phylum are mollusks. In this chapter we discuss the mode and rate of growth in ammonoids, focusing primarily on postembryonic growth. We first discuss the general mode of growth and then describe the ontogenetic sequence of growth stages. These stages are recognized on the basis of changes in by:

Scaphitoid ammonites are abundant in some rocks of the Colorado group. On the south and east side of the San Juan Basin species o|f Scaphites are present in the Mancos Shale in the following localities: Scaphites v^arreni and S. ferranensis: Senorita Canyon Scaphites warreni: . Cephalopods. Cephalopods are molluscs, but they have many physiological attributes that distinguish them from other molluscs, including predatory lifestyles and sophisticated nervous ically, cephalopods have been a prolific class, though research is sparse. Today, the class encompasses octopuses, cuttlefish, squid, and nautiluses.

Introduction. The Cephalopoda is an ancient and very successful group of the Mollusca. Cephalopods have been among the dominant large predators in the ocean at various times in geological history.

Two groups of cephalopods exist today: The Nautiloidea with a few species of the pearly nautilus, and the Coleoidea, containing the squids, cuttlefishes, octopods and vampire squids, which is. The cephalopods are a diverse class of mollusks (a group that also includes snails and bivalves) that emerged during an explosion of animal diversity in the oceans during the Cambrian period, over million years ago (mya).

The book describes the brains and sense organs of 57 of the genera of the class Cephalopoda, many in great detail, as well as a variety of morphological features.

Cephalopods are members of the Mollusca phylum and include such marine creatures as squid, cuttlefish and name “cephalopod” comes from the Greek and roughly translates as “head-feet,” which I’m sure we can all agree pretty much sums up the appearance of these creatures.

The Cephalopod Page features the class of marine mollusks that includes nautilus, squid, cuttlefish, and octopus. Wood's cephalopod work has been featured on the Discovery Channel and National Geographic in 'Tentacles' and 'Squid Invasion'.

The cephalopods have a long geological history, with the first nautiloids found in late Cambrian strata, and purported stem-group representatives present in the earliest Cambrian lagerstätten.
