Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found on coral sand and turtle grass (Ref. 86832), in intertidal areas (Ref. 83942). Members of the class Holothuroidea are gonochoric and have only one gonad. Spawning and fertilization are both external and some exhibit brooding. Life cycle: Embryos develop into planktotrophic larvae (auricularia) then into doliolaria (barrel-shaped stage) which later metamorphose into juvenile sea cucumbers (Ref. 833).
