Topical Sessions
Exceptional preservation, Taphonomic studies and biases in the study of fossil cephalopods
Characters, Genes, Species and Phylogeny
Ecology of cephalopods, Trophic relationships
Biodiversity of Cephalopods: from micro- to macroevolutionary scale
Ontogeny, Life Trait History, Behavior and Habitat
Contribution of new technologies to the understanding of fossil and modern cephalopods
First cephalopods and their diversification

Special topical session
Nautilus as an endangered species
Chairs: Neil H. Landman & Royal Mapes
Nautilus and Allonautilus are the last surviving externally shelled cephalopods. These taxa are being considered
for listing by CITES as being endangered. As experts on cephalopods, we have been asked to provide
information to help evaluate the status of these two genera. Therefore, a topical session is proposed on this
subject. Data that bear on this question include nautiloid phylogeny, predators, rate of growth, longevity, mode
of reproduction, role in the marine ecosystem, size of populations, and geographic distribution. After individual
presentations, it is hoped that a discussion will follow leading to a summary statement regarding the status of
Nautilus and Allonautilus.

Be sure to report back. A little journal would be wonderful :wink:. It seems that the French have done a lot more octopus research than any other country (at least in the past).

I always wanted to visit France but failed even to do a day in Paris during the one opportunity that was available.
