Broad phylogenomic sampling improves resolution of the animal tree of life
This data reinforce several previously identified clades that split deeply in the animal tree, unambiguously resolve multiple long-standing issues for which there was strong conflicting support in earlier studies with less data, and provide molecular support for the monophyly of molluscs, a group long recognized by morphologists.

There are morphological characters that support Articulata, but molecular as well as morphological data advocate Ecdysozoa, and comparative morphology suggests Gastrotricha as the sister group of Ecdy sozoa with the synapomorphies.

The phylogenetic frame helps clarify the structure of the human body and provides a framework for understanding the role of the immune system, which plays a central role in human health.
Do hairworms (Nematomorpha) manipulate the water seeking behaviour of their terrestrial hosts?
Results clearly indicate that crickets infected by the nematomorph Paragordius tricuspidatus are more likely to jump into water than uninfected ones and the idea that this manipulation involved water detection from long distances by infected insects is not supported.
Invertebrate neurophylogeny: suggested terms and definitions for a neuroanatomical glossary
The use of revised neuroanatomical terminology in any new descriptions of the anatomy of invertebrate nervous systems will improve the comparability of this organ system and its substructures between the various taxa, and finally even lead to better and more robust homology hypotheses.

The evolutionary relationships of rotifers and acanthocephalans
Combining molecular and morphological analyses of Bilateria leads to a tree with Platyhelminthes, Rotifera, Acanthocephala and Gnathostomulida (and probably Gastrotricha) as a sister group to the annelid-mollusc lineage of the Spiralia.
