Echinoderms have served more extensively than any other group of animals for the investigation of basic problems of fertilization and early development. It was with sea urchins that Hertwig (1875) first effectively demonstrated the principal features of fertilization : the incorporation of the sperm into the egg and the fusion of sperm pronucleus with egg pronucleus.
