Welcome to the new CEPHBASE and its home within the Encyclopedia of Life (EOL).
CephBase is a repository of data and factual information for the CLASS CEPHALOPODA - squids, octopuses, cuttlefish and nautilus. These remarkable and unique animals are best known to the public for their ability to instantly change color pattern, and for their jet propulsed escape and inking. Cephalopods are keystone species in marine ecosystems, they are important biomedical models for research, and they are the target of substantial fisheries worldwide.
There are more than 800 known species and new ones are being discovered every year. In addition to photos, videos, publications, taxonomic classification and general biology, CephBase maintains a list of researchers who are currently studying many facets of cephalopod science.  
We are all indebted to the original contributors of Cephbase who envisioned its potential, raised funds to support it, and worked to fill its pages with a wide array of information useful to scientists and citizens worldwide (see the History of CephBase).
Enjoy your exploration of these web pages (and their links to other information sources) as they introduce the many fascinating wonders of cephalopods.

Disclaimer: PC-Tax is the product of ongoing research and we continuously update the taxonomy and data.
PC-Tax is the Pontocaspian taxonomic platform that targets so-called Pontocaspian biota. These biota are a unique flora and fauna that evolved in mostly brackish lake systems in and around the Caspian Sea, Black Sea and adjacent lakes in the past few million years.

PC-Tax is developed as part of the EU-funded Innovative Training Network “PRIDE” (Drivers of Pontocaspian Biodiversity Rise and Demise). Between 2015 and 2018 we will include different lake biota, fossil and recent that characterize the Pontocaspian biota in PC-Tax. Initially we will focus on a number of groups including bivalves, gastropods, ostracods, and dinoflagellates.
The aim of PC-Tax is to provide standardized taxonomic information to be used by researchers working with Pontocaspian biodiversity. We aim to attract users beyond the PRIDE program. 
PC-Tax is maintained by Aleksandre Gogaladze & Niels Raes (Naturalis Biodiversity Center, Leiden, The Netherlands), so if you have any question please mail us at aleksandre(dot)gogaladze(at)naturalis(dot)nl
