Using information in taxonomists’ heads to resolve hagfish and lamprey relationships and recapitulate craniate–vertebrate phylogenetic history
This reanalysis emphasises that the debate on whether the Cyclostomata is monophyletic or paraphyletic must be resolved formally on the basis of principles and practices for phylogenetic systematic analysis including fossil data.
From somites to vertebral column
It is indicated that a role for the notochord in vertebral segmentation is present in amniotes, highlighting a much-overlooked aspect of the development and evolution of vertebral patterning.

Two types of bilateral symmetry in the Metazoa: chordate and bilaterian.
Evidence derived from certain bizarre Palaeozoic marine fossils gives a detailed history of the early evolution of echinoderms and chordates and shows how the new bilateral symmetry was gradually acquired in chordates.

This was the first generalization or attempt to combine the groups which from all time have been recognized as "beasts" or "animals," "birds," "fishes," and others in still more comprehensive groups.
