Out of Tibet: Pliocene Woolly Rhino Suggests High-Plateau Origin of Ice Age Megaherbivores
The Tibetan Plateau acted as a cradle of adaptation to cold for Pleistocene megafauna. Ice Age megafauna have long been known to be associated with global cooling during the Pleistocene, and theirExpand
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 inExpand
A 25 m.y. isotopic record of paleodiet and environmental change from fossil mammals and paleosols from the NE margin of the Tibetan Plateau
We use the carbon and oxygen isotopic compositions of fossil tooth enamel and paleosols to reconstruct the late Cenozoic history of vegetation and environmental change in the Linxia Basin at theExpand
NEW MATERIALS OF CHILOTHERIUM WIMANI (PERRISODA-CTYLA, RHINOCEROTIDAE) FROM THE LATE MIOCENE OF FUGU, SHAANXI
The new materials in the present paper have abundant skull and mandible specimens, and they improve a deeper recognition to Ch. wimani for us. These new specimens show that Ch. wimani has aExpand
Recent assembly of the global herbaceous flora: evidence from the paper daisies (Asteraceae: Gnaphalieae).
The global flora is thought to contain a large proportion of herbs, and understanding the general spatiotemporal processes that shaped the global distribution of these communities is one of the mostExpand
Stable isotopes in fossil mammals, fish and shells from Kunlun Pass Basin, Tibetan Plateau: Paleo-climatic and paleo-elevation implications
We report the results of a stable isotope study of a late Pliocene fauna recently discovered in the Kunlun Mountain Pass area (similar to 4700 m above sea level) on the northern Tibetan Plateau. TheExpand
NEW DISCOVERY OF IRANOTHERIUM MORGANI (PERISSODACTYLA, RHINOCEROTIDAE) FROM THE LATE MIOCENE OF THE LINXIA BASIN IN GANSU, CHINA, AND ITS SEXUAL DIMORPHISM
Abstract A large-bodied (skull length 775 mm) elasmothere rhinoceros was discovered in the early late Miocene (equivalent to the European Vallesian) Liushu Formation of the Linxia Basin inExpand
