Abstract

This work is concerned with marine animals that can induce dermatitis through various pathogenic mechanisms. On this basis, there would be no point in considering those species that lack toxins and can only produce traumatic lesions. However, the need to follow some zoological classification of marine species dictates at least a brief mention of various species lacking in biotoxins, such as the Arthropods.
