We joke that rats and cockroaches will inherit the Earth, but cephalopods
may also be a benefactor.
The engineers, along with collaborator and cephalopod
biologist Roger Hanlon of the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL), Woods Hole, report on their controllable soft actuator in the October 13 issue of Science.
The Hawaiian bobtail squid (Euprymna scolopes): a model to study the molecular basis of eukaryote-prokaryote mutualism and the development and evolution of morphological novelties in cephalopods
probably chose to take this RNA bargain over genome evolution, and maybe vertebrates made the other choice-they preferred genome evolution over editing.
also use a gas-containing shell in a similar manner to cuttlefish to maintain neutral buoyancy.
On the basis of the results of our study, we can see that the microstructure of the beak in red flying squid is similar to that in different cephalopods
, as was reported in a previous study (Perales-Raya et al.
of the world: an annotated and illustrated catalogue of species of interest to fisheries.
are served not only fresh, but also dried, frozen and chilled products (Paredi and Crupkin, 1997; Ueng and Chow, 1998; Hurtado et al.
comprised 97%N of the total items identified and included 11 taxa from 5 families: Gonatidae (69.
Colour patterns in straight-shelled cephalopods
(orthocerids, pseudorthocerids and lituitids) are rather poorly known in comparison with oncocerids and discosorids (Nautiloidea).
Caption: By mimicking the skin of camouflaging cephalopods
like cuttlefish (left), scientists created a thin, flexible material that can copy light patterns in the environment.
The most frequent and abundant cephalopods
were Argonauta spp.
Lead concentrations in bivalves, crustaceans, gastropods, and cephalopods
in five sampled months were in the ranges of 0.
It fits in the category of cephalopods
In recent years cephalopods
from around the world have been enlisted to try and predict everything from World Cup football results to the winners of the Superbowl - with varying success.
