*Wilson's paper of 1907 provided the grounds for the theory of specific cell adhesion molecules, having discovered that sponges will re-form functional individuals by sorting-out, even after having been mechanically dissociated into random mixtures of their several differentiated cell types. Julian Huxley repeated Wilson's method using different species of sponge and concluded that sponge cells rearrange according to differentiated cell type.
