First record of Cretaceous wood rotting fungi in China

  Structurally preserved petrified woods contain not only information of wood anatomy, but also plenty of physiological and ecological information, including trace fossils of insect boring, fungal hyphae and other micro-organisms. Study of these permineralized plants is helpful to reveal the e...
Re-evaluation of the systematic position of the Jurassic–Early Cretaceous fern genus Coniopteris
It is generally recognized that the fossil records are incomplete in nature, yet fossils had very important impact on our development of evolutionary theory. The value of a particular fossil in contributing to our knowledge in evolutionary history for any lineage depends upon an adequate descript...
In situ, three-dimensionally preserved stem-group hexactinellid sponge fossils from the Terreneuvian phosphorites of Hunan, China
Our understanding of the early evolutionary history of sponges is largely impeded by the scarcity of early sponge fossil record, In spite of the purported sponge fossil from the Ediacaran Weng’an Biota, the earliest sponge spicules were found in the Protohertzina anabarica zone of about 535 Ma o...
Cephalopod palaeobiogeographic study indicates palaeoplate movements during the Middle to Late Ordovician

  During the Ordovician, most Chinese continental blocks were located near the tropical area around the Gondwanan supercontinent, containing South and North China, Tarim, Himalaya, Lhasa and Sibumasu (Baoshan). Their paleogeographic locations and movements have always been research hotspots.
Calibrating the terminations of Cryogenian glaciations
Recently, an international team led by Prof. ZHOU Chuanming from Nanjing Institute of Geology and Palaeontology, Chinese Academy of Sciences reported two new high-precision U-Pb zircon dating data from two layers above the Cryogenian Sturtian and Marinoan in South China, which provides evidence f...
99-million-old rove beetles catch their prey using a protrusible ‘tongue’

  The hyperdiverse rove beetle genus Stenus (Steninae) has one of the most specialized prey-capture structures known from extant arthropods. They use a ‘tongue’-like apparatus formed by a protrusible labium with terminal sticky cushions and a haemolymph pressure to catch fast-fleeing prey. F...
