    Jun 15,  · Book: Introductory Biology (CK) Invertebrates On the other hand, echinoderms have a well-developed coelom and a complete digestive system. Echinoderms use pheromones to communicate with each other. They detect the chemicals with sensory cells on their body surface. Some echinoderms also have simple eyes (ocelli) that can sense light. Echinoderms are slow animals radically different from us, but they are an evolutionary success. All echinoderms have five-part symmetry. We see the inner workings of sea stars, from their tube feet to their skeleton. Urchins are ferocious herbivores chomping down kelp with their jaws.

    Echinoderms are generally found in shallow water near shores or in reef environments but can also live in great depths of water. Almost all echinoderms are benthic, meaning they live on the seafloor, but some sea lilies can swim for some distance while some sea cucumbers float throughout the water (Xiaofeng, Hagdorn, & Chuanshang, ). With the Arthropods, the progression of protostome animal groups hits its end. Now we go back to the deuterostome line of animals, which only has two major groups on it: our group, the chordates, which well get to soon, and the echinoderms, the starfish, sea urchins, and their relatives, a rather odd group to be our nearest relatives.

    Echinoderms have a system of internal water-filled canals, which in many echinoderms form suckered "tube feet", with which the animal may move or grip objects.

Studyed the gene "engrailed", which was found to be expressed along the anterior-posterior axis in central nervous system of bilateral animals. They found in Echinoderms that EACH ARM has the "engrailed" gene corresponding to each arm may correspond to a body-axis. This means that the echinoderm had 5 tails.

Adult echinoderms exhibit pentaradial symmetry and have a calcareous endoskeleton made of ossicles (Figure ), although the early larval stages of all echinoderms have bilateral symmetry. The endoskeleton is developed by epidermal cells, which may also possess pigment cells, giving vivid colors to these animals, as well as cells laden with.
