CENOGRAMS OF FOSSIL MAMMALS INDICATED LATE CENOZOIC ENVIRONMENTAL CHANGES IN THE LINXIA BASIN (GANSU, CHINA)
CENOGRAMS OF FOSSIL MAMMALS INDICATED LATE CENOZOIC ENVIRONMENTAL CHANGES IN THE LINXIA BASIN (GANSU, CHINA)
  The evolutionary history of mammalian communities is significant for reconstructing past environments and climate. A cenogram is a rank-ordered body mass distribution of non-predatory terrestrial mammal s...
The origin and early evolution of feathers: insights from recent paleontological and neontological data
    The origin and early evolution of feathers: insights from recent paleontological and neontological data
  Recent paleontological and neontological studies on feathers and feather-like integumentary structures have improved greatly our understanding of the origin and early evolution of feathers. New observa...

New York Times:Near-Complete Fossil Offers Insight on Early Fish
In trying to make evolutionary sense of the bony fish (and, by extension, land vertebrates) scientists have been hampered by a lack of completeness. Most of the earliest fossils of bony fish, dating to the Silurian period more than 416 million years ago, are fragmentary — a jawbone here, a tooth there.

New Scientist :Chinese challenge to 'out of Africa' theory
00:01 03 November 2009 by Phil McKenna
  The discovery of an early human fossil in southern China may challenge the commonly held idea that modern humans originated out of Africa.
  Jin Changzhu and colleagues of the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology in Beijing, announced to Chinese medi...
Nature: Peking man was cool

  The age of Homo erectus, known familiarly as Peking Man, has been hotly debated. This week Shen et al. use a recently developed dating technique that computes deposits to be about 770,000 years old — about 300,000 years earlier than usually thought. The cover shows a replica skull reconstructed from several H....
