Media reviews

"A wide assortment of mostly academics in fields like oceanography and marine biology contributed to this volume [...] The book is divided roughly into two sections. The first is a description of virtually all aspects of sea-urchin biology and habitat [...] The second half of the book [...] gives in depth coverage to specific species of sea-urchins."
–, March 2014

"Consists of contributions from leading sea urchin experts, covering the basic biology of sea urchins and describing 17 species of edible sea urchines [...] This text is a solid compilation of the state of the knowledge of sea urchin biology, and will be a valuable addition to the library of any sea urchin researcher or marine biologists."
– Northeastern Naturalist
