Some places to start (actually, two papers in the same volume):

J.-J. Zheng.  1993.  Djadokhta Formation correlative strata in Chinese Inner
Mongolia: an overview of the stratigraphy, sedimentary geology, and
paleontology and comparisons with the type locality in the pre-Altai Gobi.

"To trace that life in its manifold changes through past ages to the present
is a ... difficult task, but one from which modern science does not shrink.
In this wide field, every earnest effort will meet with some degree of
success; every year will add new and important facts; and every generation
will bring to light some law, in accordance with which ancient life has been
changed into life as we see it around us to-day."
