Early Pleistocene 40Ar/39Ar ages for Bapang Formation hominins, Central Jawa, Indonesia
This work investigates the sedimentary framework and hornblende 40Ar/39Ar age for volcanic deposits in the southeast quadrant of the Sangiran dome, and identifies a sequence of sedimentary cycles in which H. erectus fossils are associated with epiclastic pumice. Expand
Early Homo and associated artefacts from Asia
The hominid dentition and stone tools from Longgupo Cave are comparable in age and morphology with early representives of the genus Homo (H. habilis and H. ergaster) and the Oldowan technology in East Africa. Expand
Primate postcrania from the late middle Eocene of Myanmar
The humerus and ulna indicate that Pondaungia was capable of a wide variety of forelimb movements, with great mobility at the shoulder joint, and Morphology of the distal calcaneus indicates that the hind feet were mobile at the transverse tarsal joint. Expand
The first skull of the earliest giant panda
The discovery of the first skull of A. microta is reported, establishing its cranial anatomy and demonstrating that the specialized cranial and dental adaptations of Ailuropoda for durophagous feeding behavior centered on bamboo were already evident in this late Pliocene species. Expand
New assessment of Pondaungia and Amphipithecus (Primates) from the late middle Eocene of Myanmar, with a comment on 'Amphipithecidae'
Fossil primates have been known from the late middle to late Eocene Pondaung Formation of Myanmar since the description of Pondaungia cotteri in 1927. Three additional primate taxa, AmphipithecusExpand
A review of evidence for postulated Middle Pleistocene occupations in Viet Nam
Abstract Since the early 1960s, some Vietnamese and Soviet scholars have proposed that a number of fossil hominid and archaeological localities scattered across the territory of Viet Nam are ofExpand
Dated co-occurrence of Homo erectus and Gigantopithecus from Tham Khuyen Cave, Vietnam.
The dated co-occurrence of Homo erectus and Gigantopithecus blacki at Tham Khuyen helps to establish the long co-existence of these two species throughout east Asia during the Early and Middle Pleistocene. Expand
Opal phytoliths found on the teeth of the extinct ape Gigantopithecus blacki: implications for paleodietary studies.
Identification of opal phytoliths bonded to the enamel surface of the teeth of Gigantopithecus blacki indicates that this extinct ape had a varied diet of grasses and fruits. By using the scanningExpand
