Barker (marine science, U. of Otago, New Zealand) presents the nine plenary talks, 88 contributed oral papers, and 64 posters from the January/February 2000 conference on the biology of echinoderms (starfish, sea cucumbers, sea urchins, and the like). After discussions of general topics related to echinoderms, sections are organized by taxonomy, with specific discussions of extinct classes, crinoids, asteroids, ophiuroids, holothuroids, and echinoids. The specific topics range thematically, with specific topics including biogeography, functional morphology, and systematics; fisheries, aquaculture, and ecology; reproduction and larval ecology; palaeobiology and functional morphology; neural biology and regeneration; ecology; evolution and genetics; and developmental biology.
