  2. 2. WHAT ARE COMMON CHARACTERISTICS OF ECHINODERMS? <ul><li>Echinoderms are characterized by spiny skin, an internal skeleton, a water vascular system, and suction cuplike structures called tube feet. </li></ul>
  3. 3. WHAT ARE THE GROUPS OF ECHINODERMS? <ul><li>The groups of echinoderms are: </li></ul><ul><li>Sea Urchins and Sand Dollars </li></ul><ul><li>Brittle Stars </li></ul><ul><li>Sea Cucumbers </li></ul><ul><li>Sea Stars </li></ul>
  4. 4. Ecology of Echinoderms <ul><li>Echinoderms are common in a variety of marine habitats. Sea urchins help control the number of other organisms such as clams and corals. There are also threatening echinoderms. One example is a sea star called the crown-of-thorns. It is named after its row of poisonous spines. </li></ul>
