Echinodermata! Starfish! Sea Urchins! Sea Cucumbers! Stone Lillies! Feather Stars! Blastozoans! Sea Daisies!
Marine invertebrates found throughout the world's oceans with a rich and ancient fossil legacy. Their biology and evolution includes a wide range of crazy and wonderful things. Let me share those things with YOU!
For the next five weeks! The Echinoblog Goes to Tokyo, Japan!
I am travelling! I am enroute to Tokyo, Japan where I will be spending about a month studying the starfishes of Japan at the National Museum of Nature and Science in Tokyo!! which is approximately the equivalent of the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History. In other words, their country's national repository of natural artifacts and biodiversity!
Today i recap some of my past articles on echinoderms in Japan! (but next week I will blog about the trip!)
