The Comparative Embryology of Sponges
Preface Introduction 1. Development of Sponges from the Class Calcarea Bowerbank, 1864 2. Development of Sponges from the Class Hexactinellida Schmidt, 1870 3. Development of sponges from the classExpand
A Large and Consistent Phylogenomic Dataset Supports Sponges as the Sister Group to All Other Animals
Resolving the early diversification of animal lineages has proven difficult, even using genome-scale datasets. Several phylogenomic studies have supported the classical scenario in which spongesExpand
Molecular Phylogeny Restores the Supra-Generic Subdivision of Homoscleromorph Sponges (Porifera, Homoscleromorpha)
Background Homoscleromorpha is the fourth major sponge lineage, recently recognized to be distinct from the Demospongiae. It contains <100 described species of exclusively marine sponges that haveExpand
Embryogenesis and larval differentiation in sponges
Having descended from the first multicellular animals on earth, sponges are a key group in which to seek innovations that form the basis of the metazoan body plan, but sponges themselves have a bodyExpand
Reproduction cycles and strategies of the cold-water sponges Halisarca dujardini (Demospongiae, Halisarcida), Myxilla incrustans and Iophon piceus (Demospongiae, Poecilosclerida) from the White Sea.

The reproductive development of the Demospongiae species Halisarca dujardini (Halisarcida), Myxilla incrustans and Iophon piceus (Poecilosclerida) from Chupa Inlet (Kandalaksha Bay, the White Sea)Expand
Origin and evolution of the Notch signalling pathway: an overview from eukaryotic genomes
BackgroundOf the 20 or so signal transduction pathways that orchestrate cell-cell interactions in metazoans, seven are involved during development. One of these is the Notch signalling pathway whichExpand
WNT/β-Catenin Signalling and Epithelial Patterning in the Homoscleromorph Sponge Oscarella
Sponges branch basally in the metazoan phylogenetic tree and are thus well positioned to provide insights into the evolution of mechanisms controlling animal development, likely to remain active inExpand
No longer Demospongiae: Homoscleromorpha formal nomination as a fourth class of Porifera
Over the past few years, there has been growing interest among the sponge community in the phylogenetic position of the Homoscleromorpha (i.e. within or outside the class Demospongiae). RecentExpand
The Homoscleromorph sponge Oscarella lobularis, a promising sponge model in evolutionary and developmental biology
Sponges branch basally in the metazoan phylogenetic tree and are believed to be composed of four distinct lineages with still uncertain relationships. Indeed, some molecular studies propose thatExpand
Larval development in the Homoscleromorpha (Porifera, Demospongiae)
. Embryonic development from coeloblastula to fully developed larva was investigated in 8 Mediterranean homoscleromorph species: Oscarella lobularis, O. tuberculata, O. microlobata, O. imperialis,Expand
