Sea Stars

Photograph by Paul Nicklen

Popularly known as starfish, sea stars are actually echinoderms, closely related to sea urchins and sand dollars. There are some 2,000 species of sea stars living in the world’s oceans, and many wear striking colors that provide camouflage or warn off predators.

Visually arresting, hazardous to swimmers, and—to some cultures—delicious, sea urchins are also revealing new information to the scientists who study them.

Here, red sea urchins carpet a kelp forest off British Columbia. The marine invertebrates are important links in the marine food chain. Fish pick at the urchins, which feed on bits of algae.
