  • This study focuses on the three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction of an Late Jurassic fossil forest based on a fossil assemblage located in the Shishugou Formation near Jiangjunmiao, north-eastern Junggar Basin, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, Northwest China. On the basis of tree stumps found in growth position together with published data on megaplant fossils, seeds and spores, a high-resolution digital computer model, including different forest layers, was developed. In a study area of 31… CONTINUE READING
