Item Summary

Title:Covering Response of the Echinoid Evechinus chloroticus (Val.)
Authors:Dix, Trevor G.
Date Issued:Apr 1970
Publisher:University of Hawai'i Press
Citation:Dix TG. 1970. Covering response of the echinoid Evechinus chloroticus (Val.). Pac Sci 24(2):187-194.
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.
