Origin, Radiation, Extinction, and Recovery of life at Critical Intervals in the Geological History

  ★ Origin, Radiation, Extinction, and Recovery of life at Critical Intervals in the Geological History: The patterns and environmental context of the origin, diversification, extinction, and recovery of major groups of organisms.
 
Origin and Evolution of Early Life on Earth

  ★ Origin and Evolution of Early Life on Earth: The Precambrian evolutionary history of life accounts for about six-sevenths of the whole history of life on earth. A series of “milestone” events in the evolution of life occurred during this period, including: the origin of life and the est...
 
Origin and Evolution of Major Plant Groups

  ★ Origin and Evolution of Major Plant Groups: Researches in this direction emphasize the study of early vascular plants, Mesozoic ginkgoaleans, early angiosperms, reproductive structures and in situ spores of filicopsids, and ultrastructure of epidermal cells and in situ spores. 
 
Evolutionary Patterns of Palaeozoic Marine Biodiversity

  ★ Evolutionary Patterns of Palaeozoic Marine Biodiversity: Researches focus on systematic survey of Palaeozoic biodiversity of the marine ecosystem, the temporal and spatial distribution of Palaeozoic biodiversity, and the relationship between biodiversity evolution and environmental change.
 
Mesozoic-Cenozoic Non-Marine Ecosystems and Palaeogeography

  ★ Mesozoic-Cenozoic Non-Marine Ecosystems and Palaeogeography: East Asia has been dominated by non-marine ecosystems since the Indo-China Orogeny in the Triassic, with common Mesozoic volcanic activities and volcano-lacustrine deposits. Researches aim to establish the Mesozoic stratigraphic...
