Neural Crest and the Origin of Vertebrates: A New Head
Most of the morphological and functional differences between vertebrates and other chordates occur in the head and are derived embryologically from muscularized hypomere, neural crest, and epidermalExpand

The Genesis of Neural Crest and Epidermal Placodes: A Reinterpretation of Vertebrate Origins
Vertebrate body organization differs from that of other chordates in a large number of derived features that involve all organ systems. Most of these features arise embryonically from epidermalExpand

Implications of the late Palaeozoic oxygen pulse for physiology and evolution
The late Palaeozoic was marked by significant changes in atmospheric chemistry and biotic composition. Geochemical models suggest a marked increase and then decline of atmospheric oxygen andExpand
