Cephalopods in the Anthropocene: multiple challenges in a changing ocean

The “Anthropocene” has been announced as a new geological era driven by humankind. Within the Anthropocene, ocean biodiversity is being threaten by stressors such as overfishing, pollution, or climate change. Keeping in mind there are winners and losers of such human-induced global changes, there is evidence that cephalopod populations may be benefiting in this changing ocean. The present conference – Cephalopods in the Anthropocene: Multiple Challenges in a Changing Ocean – aims to discuss these global issues, while presenting the latest advances on cephalopod research. It will therefore be an excellent platform to gather students, early career researchers, and experienced scientists working on cephalopods around the world.
