    Hi all!

    I'm doing an anatomical comparison between octopus and squid. I'm comparing the functionality of tentacles, suckers, beak and radula for both in regards to how they help in the hunting/eating process.

    Does anyone know of any good (online) papers which I could reference in my proposal?

    Thanks!

    Hmm, the ones that spring to mind first are:

    Nixon, M.; Dilly, P.N. 1977. Sucker surfaces and prey capture. In: Nixon, M.; Messenger, J.B. (eds). The Biology of Cephalopods. Symposium of the Zoological Society of London 38: 447–511.

    and a lot of work by W.M. Kier - see publications list here. Not sure how many of those you'll find online though, sorry... :neutral:
