In recent years, China has produced a wealth of hominid fossils that shed new light on the course of human evolution. This book--the first comprehensive treatment of these fossil finds--offers a brief description of Chinese paleoanthropology and documents all major Chinese sites. Original translations of Chinese-language materials and new analyses of numerous fossils are included. Each fossil description includes the fossil name and location of site; how, when, and by whom it was found; a detailed description; archaeological remains at the site; and floral and faunal content of the site. Students and researchers in human evolution, evolutionary biology, evolutionary anatomy, and archaeology will welcome this much-needed guide to a remarkable treasure trove of fossil remains.Wu, Xinzhi is the author of 'Human Evolution in China', published 1995 under ISBN 9780195074321 and ISBN 0195074327.
