Human Evolution in China
A Metric Description of the Fossils and A Review of the SitesBook - 1995

This book--the first comprehensive treatment of these fossil finds--offers a brief description of Chinese paleoanthropology and documents all major Chinese sites. Originaltranslations of Chinese-language materials and new analyses of numerous fossils are included. Each fossil description includes the fossil name and location of site; how, when, and by whom it was found; a detailed description; archaeological remains at the site; and floral and faunal content of thesite. Students and researchers in human evolution, evolutionary biology, evolutionary anatomy, and archaeology will welcome this much-needed guide to a remarkable treasure trove of fossil remains.
