Abstract: The utilization during starvation of the nutrient
reserves in the gut of a temperate water
sea urchin , Strongylocentrotus purpuratus, was
measured by Lawrence et al. (1966) . There
have been no investigations of the utilization
of reserves in the gut of tropical urchins, although
the level of reserves in the gut of several
tropical species has been reported (Giese et al.,
1964; Lawrence, 1967). The results presented
in this paper concern the levels of total lipid,
neutral lipid, and carbohydrate, and the changes
that occur with starvation in the gut of the
tropical sea urchin Echinometra mathaei (de
