Jean Jose, J and Lipton, A P (2006) Developmental changes in the rock boring sea urchin, Echinometra mathaei (de Blainville) larvae exposed to macro algal extracts of Hypnea musciformis and Ulva fasciata. Journal of the Marine Biological Association of India, 48 (1). pp. 100-110.
The influence of methanol extracts of Hypnea mu.sr~forn~(Rish odophyceae) and Ulva ,fasciata (Chlorophyceae) on the development and behavioral changes in the rock boring sea urchin larvae Erhinonletra mathaei was evaluated. H. mu.sc~formiesx tract at 0.095 and 0.0095 rnglrnl suppressed the,development of the sea urchin larvae and retained them in the prism stage itself. In the short-term exposure, larvae up to 5-& day were only affected. The extracts of U. fasciata did not influence the larval developmental stages at lower concentrations.
