    Holland L. Body-plan evolution in the Bilateria: early antero-posterior patterning and the deuterostome-protostome dichotomy. Curr Opin Genet Dev. 2000;10:434-42 pubmed
    ..Comparisons with Drosophila and Cnidarians suggest a scheme for evolution of the Bilaterian body plan and emphasize the pressing need for similar studies in a wider variety of organisms, especially more basal protostomes. ..

    Holland L. Heads or tails? Amphioxus and the evolution of anterior-posterior patterning in deuterostomes. Dev Biol. 2002;241:209-28 pubmed
    ..Thus, roles for Wnt-signaling in dorso-ventral patterning of embryos may be a vertebrate innovation that arose in connection with the evolution of yolky eggs and gastrulation by extensive involution. ..
