Echinoderms are marine animals with radial symmetry. Some types of echinoderms are sea stars, sea urchins, sand dollars, and sea cucumbers.
Echinoderms are scavengers of decaying matter on the sea floor. They help control the growth of seaweeds in coral reefs, thus allowing corals to flourish. The removal of Echinoderms would result in the overgrowth of seaweeds and the devastation of coral reef habitats, affecting the sea animals that …
