Sea Urchins: Biology and Ecology, Fourth Edition, Volume 43 expands its coverage to include the entire class of Echinoidea, making this new edition an authoritative reference of the entire class of species. This is a valuable resource that will help readers gain a deep understanding of the basic characteristics of sea urchins, the basis of the great variation that exists in sea urchins, and how sea urchins are important components of marine ecosystems. Updated coverage includes sections on reproduction, metabolism, endocrinology, larval ecology, growth, digestion, carotenoids and disease.

  • Includes pertinent tables and graphs within chapters to visually summarize information
  • Provides case studies with research applications to provide potential solutions
  • Includes the entire class of Echinoidea and the effect of climate change on the biology and ecology of the species
