Early Vertebrate Fossils Found in North China 

HOHHOT (May 30) XINHUA - Archaeologists with the Chinese Academy of
Sciences recently found vertebrate fossils of the early Cretaceous
Period at several places in northern China. 

The fossils were found in Ningcheng County in north China's Inner
Mongolia Autonomous Region, and neighboring Lingyuan County in northeast
China's Liaoning Province. 

Experts have confirmed that the fossils mainly belong to about seven
categories, including a large number of tailed amphibians, which
demonstrate the abundance of biological groups in the region. 

Experts also believe that these findings will provide important clues
for comparing fossils of the same period found in neighboring countries
including Mongolia and Russia.
