Expansion of the Tibetan Plateau during the Neogene
The results imply that deformation and mountain building significantly post-date Indo-Asian collision and challenge the suggestion that the extent of the plateau has remained constant through time.
Out of Tibet: Pliocene Woolly Rhino Suggests High-Plateau Origin of Ice Age Megaherbivores
A new Pliocene mammal assemblage from a high-altitude basin in the western Himalayas, including a primitive woolly rhino is reported, suggesting that some megaherbivores first evolved in Tibet before the beginning of the Ice Age.
A mammalian fossil from the Dingqing Formation in the Lunpola Basin, northern Tibet, and its relevance to age and paleo-altimetry
The distal extremity of a rhinocerotid humerus from the upper part of the Dingqing Formation at the Lunbori locality in Baingoin County, northern Tibet, is the first mammalian fossil found in…
Oligocene primates from China reveal divergence between African and Asian primate evolution
The discovery of a diverse primate fauna from the early Oligocene of southern China, which is dominated by strepsirhines, indicating that the EOT functioned as a critical evolutionary filter constraining the subsequent course of primate evolution across the Old World.

A New Cursorial Hyena from Tibet, and Analysis of Biostratigraphy, Paleozoogeography, and Dental Morphology of Chasmaporthetes (Mammalia, Carnivora)
ABSTRACT Recent field work in the late Cenozoic Zanda Basin in southwestern Tibetan Plateau has provided new fossil evidence of vertebrate faunas spanning the late Miocene to Pleistocene, which…

The apparent connection between an ancestral high-elevation species and its modern polar descendant is consistent with the ‘Out-of-Tibet’ hypothesis postulating that high-altitude Tibet was a training ground for cold-environment adaptations well before the start of the Ice Age.
