Title: Covering Response of the Echinoid Evechinus chloroticus (Val.) 
Author: Dix, Trevor G.

Publisher: University of Hawai'i Press

Abstract: Field and laboratory observations suggest that the covering response
of Evechinus chloroticus is not significantly related to light avoidance. A positive
response of the podia to contact stimuli elicits covering .which may be important
for the capture of food, particularly algal debris.
