Reviews

@from:S. Robinson @qu:...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. @source:Aquaculture
