Fw: Book List on Paleontology from China (New)

This bit of crass commercialism appeared (unsolicited) in my inbox.  I
was about to delete it when I noticed a passel of newish (2005) books and
papers on Chinese dinosaurs and the Mesozoic flora and fauna of China.  I
removed all off-topic book titles.  I present these titles for
information purposes only.  I can't vouch for the vendor, so caveat
emptor.  You might be able to obtain these books from a different vendor.

NOTE: most of these books are written in Chinese.

Price: US$35

This book has introduced the geologic investigation route for the 30th
International Geology Conference which will be hele in China. South
Sichuan, an important geologic scenic area in Sichuan Province, includes
a group of caves of dinosaur fossils in Zigong which has extremely high
investigation value, and the grand karst landscape and a number of
worthwhile natural or artificial scenery as well. The planned route
starts from Chengdu, through Zigong,
Yibin,Junlian,Gongxian,Xingwen,Changning and other citi- es or
counties,and returns to Chengdu.The main investiga- tive contents are the
dinosaur fossils of Dashanpu (Zigong), the history of ancient salt
industry development and the karst landform at Junlian and Xingwen. In
addition,the planned scenic spots include Zigong City, Yibin City, the
Hanging Coffins of the Bo Nationality in Gongxian, the ¡°Immense Bamboo
Forest¡±in southern Sichuan, etc. This book has introduced the
development and study history ,the formation, the geologic and
physiographic survey and characteristics of the above-mentioned
landscapes ,and has given in detail the investigative route ,time ,board
and lodging places .This Chinese-English bilingual guidebook is easy to
understand with excellent pictures and composi- tions. Therefore, it is

Lythraipolles (Fossil) and Its Evolution

In Chinese with English summary
By Zhou Shanfu, Zhao Xiaohua & Bao Dexian
Published in 2005
Size: 185x260mm,hardback
Page: 102 pages+10 plates
Price: US$18.00

The ¡°Huaian Formation¡± in the basin of the Northern Jiangsu is a series
of terrestrial sediments.The Lythraipolles appeared and adapted itself to
environment in the original cycle and the early the middle development
cycle. During the late development cycle and the prosperous cycle, the
Lythraipolles evolved towards specialization. The specialization produced
many species of specialization. Specialization is highly adapted to
narrow biological environment. A slightly change of environment forced
these species of specialization to die. During the early senesecence
cycle. Rare species 
such as the Lythraitas dilutus, L. triangulates and L. giganteus became
relict species. These relict species grew in the later age. For example,
the Lythraites giganteus appeared at the Furao, Helongjiang, during
Maestrichtian.In this paper, 2 new genea, 1 genus of emendation and 47
species are described in the text in Chinese, among 2 new genera
(Huaianipollis gen. nov. and Triphyllopollis gen. nov.), 1 genus of
emendation [Lythraites(Yu, Guo et Mao, 1983) emend.] and 38 new species
are described in English.
