Pacific Science 36, no. 3: Cephalopod Expedition of the Alpha Helix

THIS ISSUE OF Pacific Science is devoted to papers resulting from the Cephalopod Expedition of the R/V Alpha Helix in October-November 1979. Because of the diverse cephalopod fauna available, the local expertise with these animals, and previous experience in the area, the central islands of the Republic of the Philippines were selected as the research area (Figure 1). The combination of sheltered waters, the unique shipboard laboratory, and biologists from around the world made it possible to explore many problems heretofore unapproachable. Some of the results of these investigations are reported here.

With the advantage of retrospection, it is easy to see how minor events shaped major changes in the original conception of this joint research effort and eventually led to a much broader concept than was originally intended. This cruise, which came to be the last cruise of the R/V Alpha Helix program of the National Science Foundation, began rather casually as a conversation between Peter Hochachka and myself in 1975 after we had participated in the Nautilus cruise organized by James Redmond that same year. We agreed that it would be valuable to assemble a group of diverse specialists to look at several poorly understood areas of cephalopod biology. We envisioned a united effort to “bring the cephalopods into the twentieth century” that would cross traditional lines of approach and attempt to bring about at least some synthesis beyond the rigid fields within biology. With these ideals in mind, we began to compile a list of scientists who could bridge disciplinary gaps. We quickly realized that there were far more unknown areas than potential investigators, and despite the fact that we did not limit ourselves to people with previous interests in cephalopods, we were hard-pressed to take the broad approach desired. In the final scientific complement, fifteen of the twenty berths originally available were filled with people who worked primarily on some aspect of cephalopod biology.

Originally, we planned to maximize the impact of the results of the cruise by asking everyone to publish together in one place, but for various reasons, this goal was not achieved. Thus, the papers included here reflect only a part of the work done during the cephalopod biology cruise in the central Visayan Islands of the Republic of the Philippines.

Of course, the efforts of even the best scientists will inevitably come to nothing unless the support personnel and facilities are adequate and congenial. All the scientific participants join me in expressing our appreciation for the help of the management personnel at Scripps Institute of Oceanography, the crew of the ship, the splendid cooperation we received from many, many people of the Philippine Islands, and the support of the National Science Foundation. Our results are due to the collaborative efforts of all the people involved. This issue is therefore dedicated to all the people who made this cruise successful.

This was the last of the Alpha Helix programs of the National Science Foundation. We take the opportunity to thank the National Science Foundation for its support of the Alpha Helix concept over the previous decade. May there arise from the ashes of the Alpha Helix program a conceptual phoenix in expeditionary biology that surpasses even Per Scholander’s original inspiration.
