Ecosensory Functions in Lower Invertebrates

  • Enrico A. Ferrero
Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSA, volume 18)


The animals ranging from Porifera to Pseudocoelomata, which are generally classified as lower invertebrates, represent a variety of diversified groups. Some are important for the number of species, for the efficiency in spreading into many ecological niches, or for the interaction with human life (when parasites or as part of ecosystem processes) while others are less important because of the restricted number of species and/or stenoecious habits.
