  A team of scientists led by Alida Bailleul and Jingmai O’Connor from the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology (IVPP) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences reported the first fossil bird ever found with an egg preserved inside its body. Their findings were published on March 20 in Nature Comm...
Dental Study of Juvenile Archaic Homo Fossil Gives Clues About Human Development

  Most aspects of dental development for a juvenile Homo specimen from the Pleistocene fall within the modern human range, according to research by a group of Chinese and international scientists. The study was recently published in Science Advances.
  The results are useful in helping to identify when modern h...
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...
New transitional fossils from China show how alvarezsaurian dinosaurs evolved monodactyl hand

  Digit reduction occurs many times in tetrapod evolution, and the most famous example is the 'horse series' of North America. An international research team announced the discovery of two new Chinese dinosaurs today: Bannykus and Xiyunykus, in the journal Current Biology, which shed light on how alvarezsaurian d...

giant panda.jpg Mitochondrial Genome of 22,000-year-old Giant Panda From Southern China Reveals New Panda Lineage

  The giant panda (Ailuropoda melanoleuca) is a flagship species for endangered species conservation. Once distributed across southern China and Southeast Asia, and historically covering a vast territory, the surviving pandas today belong to several divergent genetic populations located only in Shaanxi province o...
Panraogallus hezhengensis .jpg Song From The Distant Past, A New Fossil Pheasant From China Preserves A Super-Elongated Windpipe

  A well preserved, nearly complete skeleton of a new extinct species of pheasant that lived between 7 and 11 million years ago adjacent to the northeastern edge of the Tibetan Plateau in China preserves the oldest evidence of a bird having modified and specialized its vocalization sounds (songs or calls).
  Ev...
