Scientists Discover Evolutionary Link to Modern-Day Sea Echinoderms

Ohio State University

Scientists at The Ohio State University have discovered a new species that lived more than 500 million years ago—a form of ancient echinoderm that was ancestral to modern-day groups such as sea cucumbers, sea urchins, sea stars, brittle stars and crinoids. The fossil shows a crucial evolutionary step by echinoderms that parallels the most important ecological change to have taken place in marine sediments. The discovery, nearly 30 years in the making, was published recently in the Bulletin of Geosciences.
