The elaborate sensory and neural system in many extant cephalopods enables
them to exhibit complex types of adaptive behaviour (Wells, 1978; Hanlon &
Messenger, 1996; Nixon & Young, 2003; Hochner, 2008, 2010). Of the many
kinds of such complex behaviour, we focus here on exploration, play and
cognition. To adequately study exploration, or playful interaction, in cephalopods,
we need to know a good deal about their behaviour, especially 'normal' or
ethotypic behaviour, ...

All this suggests that individual experience is important in the determination of
cephalopod behaviour. This poses something of a problem. For in cephalopods
there is no parental care of the young. Once hatched, a young cephalopod
operates on its own, with experience of the outside world not limited by parental
protection. These animals, which as adults have many of the behavioural
characteristics of the higher vertebrates, have, unlike the vertebrates, to discover
what to eat, when ...

However, as this study described changes in personality in individuals held in
isolation for their entire life, there is substantial scope to determine changes in
behavioural interactions between males and females as individuals move from
subadult to adult. The use of visual displays and their importance changes as
cephalopods transition from the subadult stage to the adult stage. Cuttlefish
hatchlings are born with the ability to produce almost every adult body pattern;
however, the ...

Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Monash University, Clayton,
Victoria 3168, Australia. 14.1 Introduction The vision of cephalopods is
interesting for many reasons. One is the existence of the primitive cephalopod
Nautilus, which has apparently changed little over the past 150 million years or
so. The modern coleoid cephalopods are probably derived from ancestors that
resembled Nautilus ...

The data on reproductive biology indicate that spawning is extended, with growth
continuing during a reproductive period that probably occupies much of the life
cycle, an unusual strategy in cephalopods. Diet studies suggest that benthic
cirrates feed on small-sized organisms with low swimming speeds and the main
prey are amphipods and polychaetes. Cirrate predators include sharks, teleost
fishes, fur seals and sperm whales. Behavioural observations, based on
underwater ...

Form and function in cephalopods is covered in a major body ofliterature
exploring their anatomy, physiology and behaviour. The classical approaches of
comparative zoology establishes their status as highly evolved and specially
adapted molluscs, and simultaneously describes the many ways in which they
have evolved biological systems which are comparable to those of fish in many
instances, but by quite different routes. The principles by which cephalopod
biology is governed ...
