Sea Urchins of the World - Diversity, Symmetry & Design
Regular visitors to the sea have been known to ponder the patterned sea urchin tests that wash up there. Urchins become topics for wider discussion as impacts of overfishing, natural predators and poleward movement become environmental issues.
We've just received news of recent publication on Sea Urchins of the World by Ashley Miskelly that is the fruit of many years of study on these sea star relatives. The images are magnificent and you may find your perception of these often underestimated denizens takes a turn into awe. The book visually demonstrates the symmetry, diversity and fascinating architecture of sea urchins from Antarctia to the tropics.
