Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Minimum depth from Ref. 865. Members of the class Asteroidea exhibit both asexual (regeneration and clonal) and sexual (gonochoric) means of reproduction. Life cycle: Embryos hatch into planktonic larvae and later metamorphose into pentamorous juveniles which develop into young sea stars with stubby arms (Ref. 833). Breeds from March to April. Each sea star may spawn several times at intervals of two to ten days, releasing more than 2,000 eggs at a time (Ref. 93256).
