All for one and one for all: condensations and the initiation of skeletal development.
  • B. Hall, T. Miyake
  • Biology
    BioEssays : news and reviews in molecular…
  • 1 February 2000
TLDR
A synopsis of the current understanding of how condensations are initiated and grown, how their boundaries and sizes are set, how condensation ceases, and how overt differentiation begins is presented.
Bones and cartilage : developmental and evolutionary skeletal biology
TLDR
The second edition of Bones and Cartilage includes the most recent knowledge of molecular, cellular, developmental and evolutionary processes, which are integrated to outline a unified discipline of developmental and developmental skeletal biology.
Buried alive: How osteoblasts become osteocytes
TLDR
This review explores the osteoblast‐to‐osteocyte transformation during intramembranous ossification from both morphological and molecular perspectives and suggests one of the five scenarios that best fits as a model.
A MODEL FOR DEVELOPMENT AND EVOLUTION OF COMPLEX MORPHOLOGICAL STRUCTURES
  • W. Atchley, B. Hall
  • Biology
    Biological reviews of the Cambridge Philosophical…
  • 1 May 1991
TLDR
Evidence was provided that variation in mandibular morphology is heritable, subject to modification by natural selection, and that divergence among different genetic stocks has apparently occurred through changes in these developmental units and their derivative structures.
The Neural Crest in Development and Evolution

  • 14 March 2013
TLDR
This work has shown that not only the structure of the Tournaisian distribution but also the distribution of Tournaiocytes in response to selection has changed over the course of evolutionary time.
DEVELOPMENT AND EVOLUTIONARY ORIGINS OF VERTEBRATE SKELETOGENIC AND ODONTOGENIC TISSUES
TLDR
This review deals with the following seven aspects of vertebrate skeletogenic and odontogenic tissues: innervation, chemoreception, histology, histopathology, “soft” and “hard” tissues.
Development of the dermal skeleton in Alligator mississippiensis (Archosauria, Crocodylia) with comments on the homology of osteoderms
TLDR
This investigation explores the development of the dermatocranium, gastralia, and osteoderms in the American alligator, Alligator mississippiensis, and concludes that all osteoderm may share a deep homology, connected by the structural and skeletogenic properties of the dermis.
Canalization, developmental stability, and morphological integration in primate limbs.
TLDR
It is reported that the covariation structure of fore- and hindlimb skeletal elements shows evidence for morphological integration between serially homologous structures between the limbs, which is evidence for the existence of developmental modules that link structuresbetween the limbs.
Compressed vertebrae in Atlantic salmon Salmo salar: evidence for metaplastic chondrogenesis as a skeletogenic response late in ontogeny.
TLDR
It is proposed that an altered mechanical load could have caused the transformation of the bone growth zones and the concomitant replacement of the intervertebral (notochord) tissue by cartilaginous tissues in the 'short tails' studied here.
The role of movement and tissue interactions in the development and growth of bone and secondary cartilage in the clavicle of the embryonic chick.
  • B. Hall
  • Biology, Medicine
    Journal of embryology and experimental morphology
  • 1 April 1986
TLDR
The clavicle of the embryonic chick shares all of the features and epigenetic requirements of the craniofacial the embryonic chicks shares all-of-the-features and epigenetics requirements of of the Craniof facial membrane bones, but is more dependent upon biomechanical factors for its growth.
