  Physiology of Echinoderms is an chapter book that begins by elucidating the feeding, digestion, and excretion of specific echinoderms. The critical role of amoebocytes in the excretion process involved in these organisms is also explained. This book also describes several aspects of importance to these organisms, including salinity tolerance, osmoregulation, ionic Book Edition: 1.

Echinoderms have an internal skeleton made of bony plates (ossicles) of calcium carbonate. They deposit this material after extracting dissolved calcium and carbonate (bicarbonate) ions from sea water. In some species, such as the sea urchin, plates of the skeleton are locked together to .

The echinoderms are a phylum of exclusively marine invertebrate animals that includes the familiar starfish (asteroids, Class Asteroidea), brittle stars or serpent stars (ophiuroids, Class Ophiuroidea), sea urchins (echinoids, Class Echinoidea), sea cucumbers (holothurians, Class Holothuroidea), and sea lilies and feather stars (crinoids, Class Crinoidea). Physiology Interaction of heavy metals with intestinal transport mechanisms in echinoderms Support of metabolism of superficial structures through direct net uptake of dissolved primary amines in echinoderms Members of the phylum Echinodermata are among the most familiar marine invertebrates. Forms such as the sea star have become virtually a symbol of sea life. Used in ancient oriental medicine as a source of bioactive compounds, sea cucumbers, sea stars and sea urchins are now used for the extraction and purification of cytotoxic, haemolytic, antiviral, antifungal, antifouling, antimicrobial and /5(2).
