Medullary Bone Found in Cretaceous Birds

  A team of scientists led by Jingmai O’Connor from the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology (IVPP), Chinese Academy of Sciences, reported the first occurrence of medullary bone in Enantiornithes, the dominant clade of birds during the Cretaceous. The findings were published in Nature Commu...
New Archaeological Site Revises Human Habitation Timeline on Tibetan Plateau

  Human ancestors first set foot on the interior of the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau around 30,000-40,000 years ago, according to new research by scientists from the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). This new finding moves back the earliest data of habitation in the interior by 20,000 years or more.
  The research ...
Unique Early Cretaceous bird from China provides window into the early evolution of birds and flight

  A new extinct species of bird from a 127 million-year-old fossil deposit in northeastern China provides new information about the different evolutionary paths and experiments birds experienced during the early evolution of flight. Writing in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), Drs. Min W...
