Pentimento: Neural Crest and the origin of mesectoderm

Jim Weston and Jean Paul Thiery have produced a detailed, careful and clearly-written summary of their 'metablast' hypothesis, in which they argue that neural crest does not, after all, form the skeletogenic (ectomesenchyme or mesectoderm) lineages. A revolutionary hypothesis, of course, but looking very plausible. Well worth a read.
