IVPP Paleontologist Chang Mee-mann Presented With a Prestigious Award in Paris

  Paleontologist Dr. CHANG Meemann (ZHANG Miman), a senior professor of Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology (IVPP), Chinese Academy of Sciences, has been recognized by UNESCO and the L'Oréal Foundation as one of five outstanding female scientists from around the world for “her pioneering ...
Line drawing of the holotype of Eogranivora edentulata.jpg Cretaceous Bird Clarifies Early Trophic Evolution in the Ornithuromorpha

  In a new study published Jan 30 in Proceedings of the Royal Society B, a team of researchers from the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology (IVPP), Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Lingyi University in Shandong, has shown that a previously described specimen of Hongshanornis longicresta f...
1_web.png How ancient genomics unveils the prehistory of humans

  In the last decade, the field of ancient DNA has flourished, with unprecedented success in sequencing genome-wide data from ancient specimens. The majority of the research has focused on past humans, both modern humans with a close relationship to one or more present-day populations as well as archaic humans th...
Life reconstruction of Hamipterus tianshanensis.jpg Exceptionally Preserved Eggs and Embryos Reveal the Life History of a Pterosaur

  The pterosaur record is generally poor, and pterosaur eggs are even rarer. Only a handful of isolated occurrences of eggs and embryos have been reported so far. Three-dimensionally preserved eggs include one from Argentina and five reported from the Turpan-Hami Basin, Xinjiang, northwestern China in 2014. Our u...
IVPP Professor Chang Mee-mann Named One of Five L’Oréal-UNESCO Outstanding Women in Science

  Paleontologist Dr. CHANG Meemann (ZHANG Miman), a senior professor of Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology (IVPP), Chinese Academy of Sciences, is recently honoured by UNESCO and the L'Oréal Foundation as one of five outstanding female scientists from around the world for “her pioneering...
Tianyuan Man.jpg Genome-wide Data from a 40,000-year-old Man in China Reveals Complicated Genetic History of Asia

  The biological makeup of humans in East Asia is shaping up to be a very complex story, with greater diversity and more distant contacts than previously known, according to a new study [1] in Current Biology analyzing the genome of a man that died in the Tianyuan Cave near Beijing, China 40,000 years ago. His b...
22.jpg Research on Gomphotherium

  For a long time, gomphotheres are considered to be the key link in proboscidean evolution. They are deemed as the ancestral stock of the true elephantids surviving now. The origins of stegodontids, rhynchotheres and cuvieroniines are believed to be more or less related to gomphotheres. However, gomphotheres are...
2.jpg New progress of research on fossil Equus

  Stenonid horse is the earliest Equus in Eurasia. The first occurrence of stenonid horse in Eurasia was regarded as the sign of the lower boundary of the Quaternary. The appearance, evolution and dispersal of the stenonid horses were contemporary with many important geological and environmental events, so they w...
Scleropages sinensis.jpg New Species of Arowana (Osteoglossid Fish) Discovered from the Eocene of China
  The Asian arowana (Scleropages formosus), known as the dragon fish, is one of the most prized and expensive aquarium fishes in the world. Scleropages is an extant freshwater fish of Osteoglossidae with a transoceanic distribution in Southeast Asia and Australia. All previously Known fossil records of Scleropage...
The Xuchang 1 crania New Finds from China Suggest Human Evolution Probably of Regional Continuity

  The period between about 200,000 and 50,000 years ago saw the amplification of regional diversity in human biology. Given the fragmentary nature of that human fossil record, the nature of these late Middle and early Late Pleistocene humans in the more northern portions of eastern Eurasia has been unclear. In a ...
