SUMMARY Evolutionary biologists studying life history variation have used echinoderms in experimental, laboratory, and field studies of life history evolution. This focus on echinoderms grew originally from the tradition of comparative embryology, in which echinoderms were central. The tools for obtaining and manipulating echinoderm gametes and larvae were taken directly from comparative embryological research. In addition, the comparative embryologists employed a diverse array of echinoderms… 
Larval ectoderm, organizational homology, and the origins of evolutionary novelty.

TLDR
Applying the perspective of organizational homology to the experimental system of congeneric echinoids has led to a new hypothesis concerning the ectoderm evolution in these species, instantiates a theoretical principle concerning the origin of developmental modules, 'integration'.

Many evolutionary modifications in development and life history derive from changes in embryonic gene expression. However, the genetic variation affecting gene expression in natural populations is
THYROID HORMONE-LIKE FUNCTION IN ECHINOIDS: A MODULAR SIGNALING SYSTEM COOPTED FOR LARVAL DEVELOPMENT AND CRITICAL FOR LIFE HISTORY EVOLUTION
TLDR
It is argued that hormones are frequently involved in the coordination of life history transitions (LHTs) and their evolution (LHE) and promoted the usefulness of a comparative, non-model system approach towards understanding how hormones function and guide development and evolution.
The hologenome concept of evolution after 10 years
TLDR
It is argued that rapid changes in the microbiome genome could allow holobionts to Adapt and survive under changing environmental conditions thus providing the time necessary for the host genome to adapt and evolve.
A comparative analysis of egg provisioning using mass spectrometry during rapid life history evolution in sea urchins
TLDR
How mass spectrometry can enrich the understanding of life history evolution and organismal diversity by identifying specific molecules associated with distinct life history strategies and prompt new hypotheses about how and why these adaptations evolve is demonstrated.
Long-term storage lipids and developmental evolution in echinoderms
TLDR
Energetic lipids in the small eggs of echinoderms with feeding larvae are primarily TAG, a class of short-term storage lipids, and DAGE, which is metabolized more slowly than TAG, dominates the large eggs of ophiuroid species with non-feeding larvae.
Evolution of direct-developing larvae: selection vs loss.

TLDR
Evidence is presented from Clypeaster rosaceus, a sea urchin with a life history intermediate to the two strategies, which indicates that major developmental changes for accelerated development have been selected for in a larva that can still feed and maintains an outward, pluteus morphology.
Egg Energetics, Fertilization Kinetics, and Population Structure in Echinoids With Facultatively Feeding Larvae
TLDR
It is found that eggs of B. latifrons resemble those of species with nonfeeding larvae in these characteristics more than those of C. rosaceus and cross-fertilization experiments indicated that bidirectional gametic incompatibility has evolved between the two species.
Fuels for development: evolution of maternal provisioning in asterinid sea stars
TLDR
Two major oogenic modifications associated with the evolution of lecithotrophic development are identified: a reduction in protein deposition that probably reflects the reduced structural requirements of nonfeeding larvae, and an increase in deposition of a single class of energetic lipid, triglyceride (TG).
Gene expression patterns in a novel animal appendage: the sea urchin pluteus arm
TLDR
The expression of a larval arm‐associated ectoderm gene tetraspanin and two new PMC markers, advillin and carbonic anhydrase, are reported, suggesting that pluteus arms are novel larval organs, distinguishable from the processes of skeletogenesis per se.

POPULATION GENETIC CONSEQUENCES OF DEVELOPMENTAL EVOLUTION IN SEA URCHINS (GENUS HELIOCIDARIS)
TLDR
A pattern of mitochondrial variation suggests that these population differences have arisen recently and may reflect the historical interplay between the restricted dispersal capabilities of H. erythrogramma and the climatic and geological changes associated with Pleistocene Ice Ages.
Oogenic strategies in the evolution of development in Patiriella (Echinodermata: Asteroidea)
TLDR
Comparison of protein profiles, histochemistry and ultrastructure of the eggs of Patiriella indicated that the major changes underlying acquisition of a large egg involved enhanced deposition of lipid in some species and an increase in yolk reserves in others.

MOLECULAR PHYLOGENETIC ANALYSIS OF LIFE‐HISTORY EVOLUTION IN ASTERINID STARFISH
TLDR
Larval forms and life‐history traits of these starfish have evolved freely under no obvious constraints, contrary to the widely assumed evolutionary conservatism of early development.
DEVELOPMENTAL CONSEQUENCES OF AN EVOLUTIONARY CHANGE IN EGG SIZE: AN EXPERIMENTAL TEST
TLDR
This is the first definitive demonstration of the causal relationship between egg size (parental investment per offspring) and life‐history characteristics in marine benthic invertebrates.
What Molecular Phylogenies Tell Us about the Evolution of Larval Forms
TLDR
Alternative hypotheses for larval trait synapomorphies among phyla, evolution of feeding with opposed prototrochal and metatrochal ciliary bands, and the retention or reacquisition of the locomotory nauplius of the Euphausiacea and Dendrobranchiata show that inferences from phylogenetic studies will ultimately be limited by the extent to which homoplasy and polarity can be unambiguously assessed for larvals traits.
Feeding and Nonfeeding Larval Development and Life-History Evolution in Marine Invertebrates
TLDR
Many marine invertebrates have elaborate feeding larval forms whereas others, sometimes within the same taxon, have more direct development, and questions about the evolution and consequences of the life histories of these forms are raised.
Wnt gene expression in sea urchin development: Heterochronies associated with the evolution of developmental mode
TLDR
It is demonstrated that sea urchin Wnt‐5 transcripts are specifically detected by in situ hybridization in discrete embryonic, larval, and developing adult tissues and processes, suggesting that Wnt-5 function(s) have been conserved in sea ittee development.

TLDR
Better models based on maximum likelihood methods and known prior probabilities of larval character state changes will improve the understanding of the history of larvals evolution.
Variation in Suspension Feeding Rates among Larvae of Some Temperate, Eastern Pacific Echinoderms
TLDR
It is shown that feeding capability varies substantially among larvae of some co-occurring, shallow-water echinoderms from the eastern temperate Pacific, and some larvae are better suspension feeders than are others.
