Vijai Dharmamony has started a cephalopod research group in Mendeley in order to develop an online directory of cephalopod researchers and to aggregate a cephalopod research bibliography. Please join the group here: https://www.mendeley.com/community/cephalopods-4/
Please also help the effort by adding references to the group!
Danna Staaf has put substantial time and effort into researching the life and work of Adolf Naef and has revised his Wikipedia page, making it much more robust: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adolf_Naef. Please head over to the page and learn about Naef’s foundational contributions to cephalopod systematics and embryology.
We are looking for more help to continue improving the records of cephalopod scientists on Wikipedia, making that information more accessible both to us and to the public. If you are interested in contributing, please contact the web team.
