Sea Cucumbers of British Columbia, Southeast Alaska & Puget Sound Paperback / softback
Sea cucumbers have inhabited the worlds oceans for about 400 million years.
They live in almost any marine habitat, from the fine ooze of the deep ocean to current-swept reefs and rocky shallows.
These marine invertebrates are related to sea stars and sea urchins and they are an integral part of our coastal ecosystems.
Philip Lambert describes over 30 species of sea cucumber living in the coastal waters of British Columbia and the United States.
He discusses distribution, natural history and habitat, as well as anatomy, physiology, reproduction, ecology and economic importance.
