Biology and palaeontology of cephalopods - remembering Sigurd von Boletzky

Sigurd von Boletzky was a cephalopod researcher who was world-renowned for his enthusiasm for his field of research, his friendly and calm personality, and, of course, for his publications. He dedicated most of his life as active researcher on the development, biology and evolution of coleoids. Nevertheless, he was always curious to learn about other cephalopods as well. Sigurd passed away in Switzerland on September 28th 2020. This Special Issue is dedicated to his memory.

The diversity of published articles is reflected by the members of our editorial board.

We welcome contributions of all fields of palaeontology including alpha taxonomy & systematics, palaeobiology, palaeobiodiversity, palaeoenvironmemt, biostratigraphy, conservation palaeontology, palaeontological methodolgy, etc. including palaeontological studies employing up-to-date methods such as CT- or synchrotron-scanning, geochemical analyses and complex phylogenetic analyses.
