... improve both male attraction and mating. Unlike other cephalopods, Octopus vulgaris adopts an indirect internal fertilization strategy. We here report on the identification and characterization of a chemoattractant peptide isolated from mature eggs of octopus females. Using two-chamber and time-lapse...

...M. J. Wells; J. Wells ABSTRACT The replacement of fluid following withdrawal of up to 40% of the blood from Octopus vulgaris can be tracked over a period of days by measuring the dilution of haemocyanin, which is not simultaneously replaced. Haemocyanin concentration was measured from the copper...
