Fossil Mammals of Asia: Neogene Biostratigraphy and by Xiaoming Wang

By Xiaoming Wang

The first textbook dedicated to the overdue Cenozoic (Neogene) mammalian biostratigraphy and geochronology of Asia, this quantity deploys innovative biostratigraphical and geochemical relationship the way to map the emergence of mammals around the continent. Written through experts operating in various Asian areas, it makes use of information from many basins with miraculous fossil documents to set up a groundbreaking geochronologic framework for land mammal evolution.

Asia’s violent tectonic background has led to a number of the world’s so much diversified topography, and its excessive mountain levels and extreme monsoon climates have spawned largely assorted environments over the years. those geologic stipulations profoundly inspired the evolution of Asian mammals and their migration into Europe, Africa, and North the United States. targeting notable new fossil unearths that experience redefined Asia’s function in mammal evolution, this textbook synthesizes info from various box stories on Asian mammals and biostratigraphy, aiding to track the histories and pursuits of extinct and extant mammals from quite a few significant teams and all northern continents, and supplying geologists from all disciplines with a richer figuring out of numerous Asia’s terrains.
