  • The first comprehensive book on the biology and ecology of pharmaceutical echinoderms.
  • Contributed by scientists of both marine biology and pharmacy disciplines.
  • All reported echinoderm species producing secondary metabolites are dealt with.
  • Previously known only as nutritional invertebrates, the contribution of the echinoderms as sources of secondary metabolites for therapeutic compounds is a topic ripe for exploration.
  • All 200+ images are produced in full color.

    This book provides the taxonomy, common name, global distribution, habitat, diagnostic features and pharmaceutical compounds (along with their activities) of 150 species of ecinoderms along with over 200 detailed illustrations in glorious color.

    Among the biota of marine habitats, the echinoderms, which include sea stars (starfish), brittle stars and basket stars, sea urchins and sand dollars, sea cucumbers, and sea lilies or feather stars, are known for their importance as promising sources of bioactive compounds for development of pharmaceuticals. Their potential therapeutic applications have been growing rapidly in the treatment of many diseases.
