Hello all,

I'm beginning a study on Patterns of recruitment for the urchin Diadema
antillarum in Martinique. I only found one paper describing juveniles
collectors (Bak,1985. Recruitment patterns and mass mortalities in the sea
urchin Diadema antillarum) which I'm actually experiencing. Any other
reference would be greatly appreciated.

Besides, I ve been trying to make an inventory of urchins in Martinique and
despite my tremendous willingness and abnegation, I fail in finding some
species alive. I've been looking for Echinoneus cyclostomus for months if
it's not years. If anybody knows in which kind of habitat to find it, please
let me know.
