Sea urchins are a major component of marine environments found throughout the world's oceans. A major model for research in developmental biology, they are also of major economic importance in many regions and interest in their management and aquaculture has increased greatly in recent years. This book provides a synthesis of biological and ecological characteristics of sea urchins that are of basic scientific interest and also essential for effective fisheries management and aquaculture. General chapters consider characteristics of sea urchins as a whole. In addition, specific chapters are devoted to the ecology of 17 species that are of major commercial interest and ecological importance. Features include: * A synthesis of what is known about the basic biological characteristics of the sea urchin, useful for the direction of future research. * Case histories of 17 species that illustrate their ecological role in a variety of environments. * With the catastrophic decline in fisheries resulting primarily from over-fishing, it is essential that the populations be managed effectively and that aquaculture be developed. This book provides knowledge of the biology and ecology of the commercially important sea urchins that will contribute to these goals. * The only book available in present literature devoted to sea urchins. With this new title experts provide a broad synthetic treatment and in depth analysis of the biology and ecology of sea urchins from around the world, designed to provide an understanding of the group and the basis for fisheries management and aquaculture.

MEDIA REVIEWS
S. Robinson ...I would heartily recommend this book for marine science libraries as well as all persons working with sea urchins considering the global distribution of these echinoderms. It is a good review of the state of the basic biology and ecological knowledge of urchins and it will be referred to numerous times by both researcher and student alike. Aquaculture
