Author, Squid Empire: The Rise and Fall of the Cephalopods (2017) Squid Empire is an epic adventure spanning hundreds of millions of years, from the marine life of the primordial ocean to the calamari on tonight’s menu. Anyone who enjoys the undersea world—along with those obsessed with all things prehistoric—will be interested in the sometimes enormous, often bizarre creatures that ruled the seas long before the first dinosaurs. Staaf has contributed to KQED San Francisco, and wrote “Squid a Day” for the blog Science 2.0. A PhD in invertebrate biology from Stanford University, she lives in Northern California

“Intriguing. . . . This in-depth coverage of an often neglected but ecologically vital group will change your view of squid, octopuses and their relatives, and make eating calamari feel like cannibalism.”—New Scientist

“This, ladies and gentlemen, is how you write a good popular academic book.”—The Inquisitive Biologist
