Here are a few..</p></li><li><p>Class CrinoideaIncludes : sea lilies and feather starsIn both types of crinoids, five arms extend from the body and branch to form many more arms- up to 200 in some feather star species.The mouth faces up in crinoids, while in most other echinoderms the mouth faces toward the sea bottom.Cilia on the arms transport trapped food to the crinoids mouth at the base of the arms.</p></li><li><p>Class OphiuroideaThe 2,000 species of basket stars and brittle stars make up the largest echinoderm class.Members of this class are distinguished by their long, narrow arms, which allow them to move more quickly than other echinoderms.Basket stars and brittle stars live primarily on the bottom of the ocean, often beneath stones or in the crevices and holes of coral reefs.</p></li><li><p>Class AsteroideaThe sea star, or starfish belong to this class. They exist in a variety of colors and shapes.Sea Stars are economically important because they prey on oysters, clams, and other organisms that humans use as food.</p></li><li><p>Crown-of-thorns starfish</p><p>Kingdom: AnimaliaPhylum: EchinodermataClass: AsteroideaOrder: SpinulosidaFamily: AcanthastGenus: Acanthaster Species: Planci </p></li><li><p>Crown-of-thorns starfishHabitat: The Great ReefsFood Source: coral polyps.

Humans usually stay away from them but in countries like Japan, they are eaten. </p></li><li><p>Does human pollution affect it?</p></li><li><p>Yes they are affected by the human pollution.
