Research Posits Fossil Tree Growth Method

  The evolution of trees and forests in the Middle to Late Devonian Period, 393–359 million years ago, profoundly transformed the terrestrial environment and atmosphere. The oldest fossil trees belong to the class Cladoxylopsida. In general, their water-conducting system was a ring of hundred...
A step toward a complete Triassic time scale: the proposal from China

  The Triassic Period (252-201 million years ago) is bounded by two mass extinctions, but the time scale of the Late Triassic still remains controversial. A new study published in Earth and Planetary Science Letters, a top journal of geoscience sheds light on this critical problem.
  A resea...
Research progress in Ediacaran biostratigraphy of South China

  Silicified microfossils from the Doushantuo Formation at the Lujiayuanzi section
  Doushantuo-Pertatataka acritarchs (DPAs) are abundant and well preserved in the Ediacaran Doushantuo Formation in South China. Not only do they provide insights into the marine ecosystem immediately after a ...
Middle–Upper Ordovician chitinozoan assemblage from Yangtze Platform

  Lithology and chitinozoan stratigraphic ranges of the Middle–Upper Ordovician Miaopo Formation at Jieling, northern Yichang, western Hubei.
  As an extinct group of organic-walled, planktic microfossils, chitinozoan is characterized by its wide distribution and short temporal range of its...

Thylacocephala (Arthropoda) from the Lower Triassic of Chaohu, China

  Ankitokazocaris chaohuensis. scale bars equal 5 mm
  Thylacocephala, though only been recognized for 25 years, has been considered a peculiar group worthy of detailed anatomical and phylogenetic studies. They are benthic arthropods showing large, laterally flattened ovoid/sub-trapezoidal b...
