Reproduction and life history. In sea urchins the sexes are separate, although in most cases males and females are externally identical. The life cycle begins with the release of vast numbers of sperm and eggs into the water column. Spawning usually takes place synchronously within populations, probably chemically mediated . Growth and reproductive rates are largely dependent on the quantity and quality of available food
Members of the class Stelleroidea include sea stars and brittle stars. Members of the class Echinoidea include sea urchins and sand dollars. Members of the class Holothuroidea include sea cucumbers. Reproduction: Echinoderms have the ability to regenerate new parts asexually. They also have separate sexes with sex organs in each arm In sexual reproduction, eggs (up to several million) from females and spermatozoa from males are shed into the water , where the eggs are fertilized. Most echinoderms spawn on an annual cycle, with the spawning period normally lasting one or two months during spring or summer; several species, however, are capable of spawning throughout the year Masatoshi Mita, in Encyclopedia of Reproduction (Second Edition), 2018 Introduction Echinoderms, which are exclusively marine animals, are divided into five classes, the Asteroidea (starfishes), Ophiuroidea (serpent-stars), Echinoidea (sea-urchins, heart-urchins, and sand-dollars), Holothuroidea (sea-cucumbers), and Crinoidea (sea-lilies and feather-stars)
Reproduction. Echinoderms are sexually dimorphic and release their eggs and sperm cells into water; fertilization is external. In some species, the larvae divide asexually and multiply before they reach sexual maturity. Echinoderms may also reproduce asexually, as well as regenerate body parts lost in trauma. Classes of Echinoderm Reproduction Sexual reproduction. Echinoderms become sexually mature after approximately two to three years, depending on the species and the environmental conditions. They are nearly all gonochoric, though a few species are hermaphroditic. The eggs and sperm cells are typically released into open water, where fertilization takes place Its reproductive periodicity is best known from central California and Oregon. In Monterey Bay, several studies suggest a single annual reproductive period of ~Jan-Mar (Boolootian et al. 1959; Moore 1959a; Giese 1961), but analyses of gonad indices in Oregon suggest two spawning periods, in late summer and late winter (Sumich & McCauley 1973) Echinoderm reproduction is varied and often complex. Most echinoderms reproduce sexually, while a few species are known to reproduce asexually or through budding. Most specious are dioecious , or contain two distinct sexes, while other species are hermaphroditic and each individual carries both sexual organs
Reproductive System. Typically, fertilization is external when it comes to echinoderms. Reproduction in most echinoderms occurs through the process of mass spawning. The females gather, releasing their gametes into the sea water around them. At the same time, the males release their gametes as well, and the two join, forming an echinoderm egg. Sea urchins (/ ˈ ɜːr tʃ ɪ n z /), are typically spiny, globular animals, echinoderms in the class Echinoidea. About 950 species live on the seabed, inhabiting all oceans and depth zones from the intertidal to 5,000 metres (16,000 ft; 2,700 fathoms). Their hard shells are round and spiny, usually from 3 to 10 cm (1 to 4 in) across La reproduction est gonochorique, et mâles et femelles relâchent leurs gamètes en même temps grâce à un signal chimique , en pleine eau, où les œufs vont se féconder et se développer 
Echinoderms have a complex life cycle, alternating between the long-lived adult stage and the short-lived embryonic and larval stages. Within this general reproductive pattern is a range of life-history strategies, including brooding and vivipary . Sphaerechinus granularis presents an annual reproductive cycle with a major spawning in the early spring. But inter annual variability in the time when spawning starts can be observed (1993).

Echinodermata (echinoderms) Phylum of 'spiny-skinned' invertebrate animals which are entirely marine.They are characterized by an internal skeleton of porous calcite plates; a pentameral symmetry (although a bilateral symmetry is often superimposed upon this radial plan, especially in many modern Echinoidea); and the presence of a water-based vascular system, a complex internal apparatus.

Lytechinus variegatus (Lamarck) is a common echinoid found on the Atlantic coast of America from North Carolina to southern Brazil and their populations inhabit sub littoral shallow-water environments.

Echinodermata: Class Echinoidea. Echinoids— sea urchins, heart urchins, and sand dollars —are echinoderms without arms and with a spiny shell, or test, formed of tightly fused skeletal plates. The sea urchins (regular echinoids) are hemispherical in shape, round on top and flat on the lower surface
Sea urchins belong to the class Echinoidea and phylum echinoderm. There are over 800 species of sea urchins found in waters around the world. The red sea urchin is the biggest of them all and is about 7 inches in diameter Although the English Channel is the northern limit of the latitudinal range of Sphaerechinus granularis (Echinodermata: Echinoidea), this echinoid can produce locally high densities in Brittany, such as in the Glenan Archipelago (Bay of Concarneau) where a small-scale fishery has been exploited since 1985.

Reproduction 5. Life Cycle Patterns. Habit and Habitat of Selaginella: Selaginella is the only living genus of the order Selaginellales and is commonly known as 'spike moss' or 'small club moss'. It is a large genus comprising of about 700 species distributed all over the world. Abundantly it is found growing in tropical rain forests
Echinoidea comes from the Greek word 'echinos' meaning spiny and includes the sea urchins, sand dollars, and heart urchins. Echinoids are the sister taxa to holothuroidians within the Echinozoa clade. Like other extant echinoderms, species in this mobile class primarily exhibit pentaradial symmetry—some have evolved bilateral. Echinoidea. Class Echinoidea is the sea urchins. The endoskeleton forma a round, rigid, test with moveable spines and pedicellariae. Urchins move by the moveable spines, jointed to sockets in the test and the sucker tipped tube feet. The flat and radiating body plan of sea stars can be transformed into that of a sea urchin by dropping the arms.
Abstract—The reproductive cycle of the edible echinoid Tripneustes gratilla (Linneaus 1758) was investigated in a population located in the southwest coast of Madagascar (Toliara). The reproductive cycle was followed for two consecutive years (October 1999 to October 2001) and characterised by means of gonad and maturity indices Sphaerechinus granularis is a common grazer that lives in various sublittoral habitats, displaying typical covering behavior; i.e., putts shell-fragments, pebbles, and algae on its test. It is an edible species of increasing commercial importance due to the depletion of the common urchin's, Paracentrotus lividus, stocks. Its biology, however, is not adequately studied over its distributional.

The Sea Urchin. Sea Urchins have no brain, and have a relatively simple nervous system layout. The center is a large nerve ring that encompasses the mouth just inside the urchin's lantern. From the nerve ring, five nerves radiate underneath the radial canals of the water vascular system and branch into even finer nerves to innervate the tube. Reproduction of the Sea Urchin. Sea urchins reproduce via external fertilization. This means that, when male and female sea urchins breed, the sea urchins release their gamete (reproductive) cells into the ocean. When a male gamete (sperm) meets a female gamete (egg), they create a zygote, or single new cell Brittle Stars, Sea Urchins & Sand Dollars. Brittle stars, relatives of sea stars, exchange gases in the base of each arm, at special pockets known as bursae.The bursae pockets are lined with tiny. Such species typically reproduce during spring and summer. Local brooding species have extended breeding seasons.
