Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found within the sediments of reef flats and forereef slopes up to a depth of 30 m. It releases milky white, pointed Cuvierian tubules in large quantities when disturbed (Ref. 85218). Members of the class Holothuroidea are gonochoric and have only one gonad. Spawning and fertilization are both external and some exhibit brooding. Life cycle: Embryos develop into planktotrophic larvae (auricularia) then into doliolaria (barrel-shaped stage) which later metamorphose into juvenile sea cucumbers (Ref. 833).
