New Magnetic Constraints on Early‐Middle Miocene Uplift of the Liupan Shan, Northeastern Margin of the Tibetan Plateau
New constraints on the uplift history of the Liupan Shan can improve our understanding of the tectonic consequences of the collision of the Indian and Asian plates, including the timing of the uplift
A new species of the tetralophodont amebelodontine Konobelodon Lambert, 1990 (Proboscidea, Mammalia) from the Late Miocene of China
A new species of Konobelodon Lambert, 1990 is described — a poorly known tetralophodont shovel-tusked proboscidean from the Late Miocene of the Linxia Basin, China — and Phylogenetic analysis of genera within Elephantimorpha results in three most parsimonious trees.
Cenozoic tectonics and landform evolution in the Qilian Mountains and adjacent areas
ABSTRACT The formation of the Qilian mountains and the evolution of adjacent basins were controlled by the uplift and northeastward growth of the Tibetan Plateau. In a field survey conducted on the
Paleogene-Neogene stratigraphic realm and tectonic-sedimentary evolution of the Qilian Mountains and their surrounding areas
The Cenozoic uplift of Qilian Mountains is critical to comprehend the uplift and extension of the Tibet Plateau as well as the formation of the first and second steps in China’s topography. This
New record of a haplocyonine amphicyonid in Early Miocene of Nei Mongol fills a long-suspected geographic hiatus
A newly discovered amphicyonid (beardogs) upper molar from the Early Miocene Lower Red Mudstone Member of Aoerban Formation in central Nei Mongol is placed on the record, which fills a large gap in the geographic distribution of the haplocyonines and represents an excursion of this rare subfamily from Europe.
Diversity of Moschidae (Ruminantia, Artiodactyla, Mammalia) in the Middle Miocene of China
Abstract. In this paper, we describe newly discovered and previously collected fossil moschid specimens from the middle Miocene of China. Besides the previously reported Hispanomeryx andrewsi, we
Neogene integrative stratigraphy and timescale of China
The widely exposed Chinese Neogene terrestrial deposits provide the best circumstance for the establishment of an accurate chronostratigraphic system of Eurasia, and the rapidly evolved mammalian
Listriodon dukkar sp. nov. (Suidae, Artiodactyla, Mammalia) from the late Miocene of Pasuda (Gujarat, India): the decline and extinction of the Listriodontinae
The Listriodontinae were a common and widespread group of Suidae (pigs) that lived in an area extending from Portugal to China and to southern Africa. Here, we describe the new species Listriodon
First record of Machairodus aphanistus KAUP, 1833 (Carnivora, Felidae, Machairodontinae) in East Asia from a late Miocene deposit of the Linxia Basin, Gansu Province, China
ABSTRACT A hemi-mandible specimen from a primitive machairodont from the early late Miocene deposit of the Shanzhuang locality (Linxia Basin, northwestern China) is described in this work. It is
It is concluded that Shanxihippus, Cremohippus and Proboscidipparion are three distinct clades that have converged in their snout lengthening and nasal retraction likely due to similarities in feeding adaptation in the late Miocene of Eurasia.
