Filling the research gap within complex invertebrate comparative cognition, this book explores the many aspects of cephalopod intelligence and thinking. With chapters covering the range of cognitive function, from play and development to the cephalopod's complex camouflage techniques, the text will be highly valuable for both researchers and graduates.
