Echinodermany of a variety of invertebrate marine animals belonging to the phylum Echinodermata, characterized by a hard, spiny covering or skin. Beginning with the dawn of the Cambrian Period million to million years agoechinoderms have a rich fossil history and are well represented by many bizarre groups, most of which are now extinct.
Living representatives include the classes Crinoidea sea lilies and feather starsEchinoidea sea urchinsHolothuroidea sea cucumbersAsteroidea starfishesor sea starsOphiuroidea basket stars and serpent stars, or brittle starsand the recently discovered Concentricycloidea sea daisies.
Echinoderms have been recognized since ancient times; echinoids, for example, Echinoderms asexual reproduction in bacteria used extensively by Greeks and Romans for medicinal purposes and as food. During the Middle Ages, fossil echinoids and parts of fossil crinoids were objects of superstition.
In the early part of the century, Echinodermata was recognized as a distinct group animals and was occasionally associated Echinoderms reproduction in bacteria the cnidarians and selected other phyla in a division of the animal kingdom known as the Radiata; the concept of a superphylum called Radiata is no longer valid.
Echinoderms asexual reproduction in bacteria are separated into 21 classes, based mainly on differences in skeletal structures. The number of extant species exceeds 6, and approximately 13, fossil species have been described. The phylum Echinoderm ata comprises the starfishes, sea urchins, and their relatives.
Their internal skeletons are made of porous blocks of calcium carbonate, and they have muscles to work their skeleton. Echinoderm s also have a hydraulic system, the water-vascular system, with movable projections from the….
Although most echinoderms are of small size, ranging up to 10 centimetres four inches in length or diameter, some reach relatively large sizes; e. Among the largest echinoderms were some extinct fossil crinoids sea lilieswhose stems exceeded 20 metres in length. Echinoderms exhibit a great diversity of body Echinoderms asexual reproduction in bacteria, especially among the extinct groups. Although all living echinoderms Echinoderms asexual reproduction in bacteria a pentamerous five-part radial symmetryan internal skeletonand Echinoderms asexual reproduction in bacteria water-vascular system derived from the coelom central cavitytheir general appearance ranges from that of the stemmed, flowerlike sea lilies, to the wormlike, burrowing sea cucumbers, to the heavily armoured intertidal starfish or sea urchin.
The general shape of the echinoderm may be that of a star with arms extended from a central disk or with branched and feathery arms extended from a body often attached to a stalk, or it may be round to cylindrical. Plates of the internal skeleton may articulate with each other as in sea stars or be sutured together to form a rigid test sea urchins.
The surface of holothurians, however, is merely warty. Echinoderms also exhibit especially brilliant colours such Echinoderms asexual reproduction in bacteria reds, oranges, greens, and purples. Many tropical species are dark brown to black, but lighter colours, particularly yellows, are common among species not normally exposed to strong sunlight.
Diverse echinoderm faunas consisting of many individuals and many species are found in all marine waters of the world except the Arctic, where few species occur. Echinoids, including globular spiny urchins and flattened sand dollarsand asteroids are commonly found along the seashore. Although many species are restricted to specific temperate regions, Arctic, Antarctic, and tropical forms often are widely distributed; many species associated with coral reefs, for example, range across the entire Indian and Pacific oceans.
Many of the echinoderms of Antarctica are distributed around the continent; those with Echinoderms asexual reproduction in bacteria floating planktonic larval stage may be widely distributed, carried great distances by ocean currents. Some species, particularly those in Antarctic and deep-sea regions, have achieved a wide distribution without benefit of a floating larval stage. They may have done so by migration of adults across the seafloor or, in the case of shallow-water species, by passive transport across oceans in rafts of seaweed.
Echinoderms tend to have a Echinoderms asexual reproduction in bacteria limited depth range; species occurring in near-shore environments do not normally reach Echinoderms asexual reproduction in bacteria greater than metres.
Some deep-sea species may be found over a considerable range of depths, often from 1, metres to more than 5, metres. One sea cucumber species has a known range of 37—5, metres.
Only sea cucumbers reach ocean depths of 10, metres and more. Echinoderms are efficient scavengers of decaying matter on the seafloor, and they prey upon a variety of small organisms, thereby helping to regulate their numbers.
When present in large numbers, sea urchins can devastate sea-grass beds in the tropics, adversely affecting the organisms dwelling within. Sea urchins that burrow into rocks and along a shore can accelerate the erosion of shorelines. Other tropical species of sea urchins, however, control the growth of seaweeds in coral reefs, thereby permitting the corals to flourish. Removal of the sea urchins results in the overgrowth of seaweeds and the devastation of the coral habitat.
Echinoderms can alter the structure of sediments in Echinoderms asexual reproduction in bacteria variety of ways.
Many sea cucumbers feed by swallowing large quantities of sediment, extracting organic matter as the sediment passes through the intestine, and ejecting the remainder. Large populations of sea cucumbers in an area can turn over vast quantities of surface sediments and can greatly alter the physical and chemical composition of the sediments.

The eggs and spermatozoa of echinoderms, particularly those of sea urchins and starfishes, are easily obtained and been used to conduct research in developmental biology.
Indeed, echinoids have been collected in such large numbers that they have become rare or have disappeared altogether from the vicinity of several marine biologic laboratories. Starfishes that prey upon commercially usable mollusks, such as oysters, have caused extensive destruction of oyster beds. Sea urchins along the California coast have interfered with the regrowth of commercial species of seaweed by eating the Echinoderms asexual reproduction in bacteria plants before they could become firmly established.
The crown-of-thorns starfishwhich feeds on living polyps of reef corals, has caused extensive short-term damage to coral reefs in some parts of the Pacific and Indian oceans.
In most species the sexes are separate; i.
Although reproduction is usually sexual, involving fertilization of eggs by spermatozoa, several species of sea cucumbers, starfishes, and brittle stars can also reproduce asexually. Asexual reproduction in echinoderms usually involves the division of the body into two or more parts fragmentation
Echinoderms asexual reproduction in bacteria the regeneration of missing body parts.
Fragmentation is a common method of reproduction used by species of asteroids, ophiuroids, and holothurians, and in some of these species sexual reproduction is not known to occur.
Successful fragmentation and regeneration require a body wall that can be torn and an ability to seal resultant wounds. In some asteroids fragmentation occurs when two groups of arms pull in opposite directions, thereby tearing the animal into two pieces.
Successful regeneration requires that certain body parts be present in the lost pieces; for
Echinoderms asexual reproduction in bacteria, many asteroids and ophiuroids can regenerate lost portion only if some part of the disk is present. In sea cucumbers, which divide transversely, considerable reorganization of tissues occurs in both regenerating parts. The ability to regenerateor regrow, lost or destroyed parts is well developed in echinoderms, especially sea lilies, starfishes, and brittle stars, all of which can regenerate new arms if existing ones are broken off.
Echinoderm regeneration frustrated early attempts to keep starfishes from destroying oyster beds; when captured starfishes were chopped into pieces and thrown back into the sea, they actually increased in numbers. So long as a portion of a body, or disk, remained associated with an arm, new starfishes regenerated. Some sea cucumbers can expel their internal organs autoeviscerate under certain conditions i. Sea urchins Echinoidea readily regenerate lost spines, pincerlike organs called pedicellariaeand small areas of the internal skeleton, or test.
In sexual reproduction, eggs up to several million from females and spermatozoa from males are shed into the water spawningwhere the eggs are fertilized.
Most echinoderms spawn an annual cycle, with the spawning period normally lasting one or two months during spring or
Echinoderms asexual reproduction in bacteria several species, however, are capable of spawning throughout Echinoderms asexual reproduction in bacteria year.
Spawn-inducing factors are complex and may include external influences such as temperature, light, or salinity of the water. In the case of one Japanese feather star Crinoideaspawning is correlated with phases of the Moon and takes place during early October when the Moon is in the first or last quarter. Many echinoderms aggregate before spawning, thus increasing the probability of
Echinoderms asexual reproduction in bacteria of eggs. Some also display a characteristic behaviour during the spawning process; some asteroids and ophiuroids raise the centre of the body off the seafloor; holothurians may raise the front end of the body and wave it about.
These movements are presumably intended to prevent eggs and sperm from becoming entrapped in the sediment. After an egg is fertilized, the development of the resulting embryo into a juvenile echinoderm may proceed in a variety of ways. Small eggs without much yolk develop into free-swimming larvae that become part of the planktonactively feeding on small organisms until they transform, or metamorphose, into juvenile echinoderms and begin life on the seafloor.
Larger eggs with greater amounts of yolk may develop into a larval form that is planktonic but subsists upon its own
Echinoderms asexual reproduction in bacteria material, rather than feeding upon small organisms, before eventually transforming into a juvenile echinoderm.
Development involving an egg, planktonic larval stages, and a juvenile form is termed indirect development. Echinoderm development in which large eggs with abundant yolk transform into juvenile echinoderms without passing through a larval stage is termed direct development. In direct development the young usually are reared by the female parent. Parental care or brood protection ranges from actual retention of young inside the body of the female until they are born as juveniles to retention of the young on the outer surface of the body.
During indirect development, the fertilized egg
Echinoderms asexual reproduction in bacteria many times to produce a hollow ciliated ball of cells blastula ; cleavage is total, indeterminate, and radical. The blastula invaginates at one end to form Echinoderms asexual reproduction in bacteria primitive gut, and the cells continue to divide to form a double-layered embryo called the gastrula.
Echinoderms resemble vertebrates and some invertebrate groups chaetognaths and hemichordates in being deuterostomes; the hole through which the gut opens to the outside blastopore marks the position of the future anus; the mouth arises anew at the opposite end of the body from the blastopore. A pair of subdivided hollow pouches arise from the gut and develop into the body cavity coelom and water-vascular system.
The characteristic larvae found among the living classes of echinoderms are modifications of the basic dipleurula pattern. Because the ciliated band of the dipleurula larva of holothurians becomes sinuous and lobed, thus resembling a human ear, the larva is known as an auricularia larva. The dipleurula larva of asteroids develops into a bipinnaria larva with two ciliated bands, which also may become sinuous and form lobes or arms; one band lies in front of the mouth, the other behind it and around the edge of the body.
Echinoderms asexual reproduction in bacteria most asteroids the larval form in the next stage of development is called a brachiolaria, which has three additional arms used for attaching the larva to the seafloor. Echinoids and ophiuroids have complex advanced larvae closely similar in type. It has fragile arms formed by lobes of ciliated bands and is supported by fragile rods of calcitethe skeletal material. The echinoid larva echinopluteus and the ophiuroid larva ophiopluteus usually have four pairs of arms but may have fewer or more.
An extra unpaired arm on the plutei of sand dollars and cake urchins extends downward, presumably to help keep the larva upright. The crinoids, which apparently lack a dipleurula larval stage, have a barrel-shaped Echinoderms asexual reproduction in bacteria called a doliolaria larva.
The doliolaria larva also occurs in other groups; in
Echinoderms asexual Echinoderms asexual reproduction in bacteria in bacteria, for example, it is the developmental stage after the auricularia larva, which may not occur in some species.
Echinoderms asexual reproduction in bacteria doliolaria larva usually contains large quantities of yolk material and moves with the aid of several ciliated bands arranged in hoops around the body.
Although most larval stages are small, often less than one millimetre 0. After a few days to several weeks in a free-swimming form planktonechinoderm larvae undergo a complex transformation, or metamorphosisthat results in the echinoderm.
Echinoderms asexual reproduction in bacteria fundamental bilateral symmetry is overshadowed by a radial symmetry dominated by formation of five water-vascular canals see below Form and function of external features. Among holothurians, echinoids, and ophiuroids, the larvae may metamorphose as they float, and the young then sink to the seafloor; among and asteroids, however, the larvae firmly attach to the seafloor prior to metamorphosis.
The average life span of echinoderms is about four years, and some species may live as long as eight or Echinoderms feed in a variety of ways. A distinct feeding rhythm frequently occurs, with many forms feeding
Echinoderms asexual reproduction in bacteria at night, others feeding continuously. Feeding habits range from active, selective predation to omnivorous scavenging or nonselective mud swallowing.
Echinoderms asexual reproduction in bacteria are suspension feeders, capturing planktonic organisms in a network of mucus produced by soft appendages, called tube feet, contained in grooves on the tentacles, or arms.

There are usually two rows of tube feet but in some species, the lateral canals are alternately long and short and there appear to be four rows. For example, a sea urchin has an 'echinopluteus' larva while a brittle star has an 'ophiopluteus' larva. Some Myths and Legends of the Australian Aborigines.

The adults are recognizable by their usually five-point radial symmetry , and include such well-known animals as sea stars , sea urchins , sand dollars , and sea cucumbers , as well as the sea lilies or "stone lilies".
The phylum contains about living species ,  making it the second-largest grouping of deuterostomes a superphylum , after the chordates which include the vertebrates , such as birds , fishes , mammals , and reptiles. Echinoderms are also the largest phylum that has no freshwater or terrestrial land-based representatives.
Aside from the hard-to-classify Arkarua a Precambrian animal with echinoderm-like pentamerous radial symmetry , the first definitive members of the phylum appeared near the start of the Cambrian. One group of Cambrian echinoderms, the cinctans Homalozoa , which are close to the base of the echinoderm origin, have been found to possess external gills used for filter feeding, like chordata and hemichordata. The echinoderms are important both ecologically and geologically.
Ecologically, there are few other groupings so abundant in the biotic desert of the deep sea , as well as shallower oceans.
Most echinoderms are able to reproduce asexually and regenerate tissue, organs, and limbs; in some cases, they can undergo complete regeneration from a single limb. Geologically, the value of echinoderms is in their ossified skeletons , which are major contributors to many limestone formations, and can provide valuable clues as to the geological environment. They were the most used species in regenerative research in the 19th and 20th centuries.
Further, it is held by some scientists that the radiation of echinoderms was responsible for the Mesozoic Marine Revolution.
