Taxonomic Invalidity of Busk's Elephant (Elephas maximus buski Matsumoto, 1927) demonstrated by AMS 14C dating
These molars must have been imported into Japan in some fashion during historical times and do not represent a subspecies distinct from extant Asian elephants, E. maximus.

Age and growth of Palaeoloxodon huaihoensis from Penghu Channel, Taiwan: significance of their age distribution based on fossils
By using length of dental material, enamel thickness (ET), and plate counts, the method to distinguish the age of Palaeoloxodon huaihoensis is established, which is directly derived from the extant African forest elephant Loxodonta africana.
Late Pleistocene climate change and population dynamics of Japanese Myodes voles inferred from mitochondrial cytochrome b sequences
The time-dependent evolutionary rates of the mitochondrial Cytb presented here would provide a possible way for assessing population dynamics of cricetid rodents responding to the late Pleistocene environmental fluctuation.
Pleistocene fossils from Japan show that the recently extinct Spectacled Cormorant (Phalacrocorax perspicillatus) was a relict
ABSTRACT Despite increasing attention to geologically recent extinctions in the ocean, little information is available on natural distributions of extinct species before contact with humans. In the

A deeper understanding of the eastern Asian Late Pleistocene paleoanthropological record will contribute to some resolution of the modern human origins debate. Here, I review the current state of the
Two species of Uria (Aves: Alcidae) from the Pleistocene of Shiriya, northeast Japan, with description and body mass estimation of a new species
Examples indicate that independent evolutions and extinctions of large-bodied species took place in two different lineages of Alcidae and in two major oceans, Alca in the Atlantic and Uria in the Pacific, and demonstrate the importance of incorporating extinct taxa in analyses of evolutionary patterns and morphological diversities.
