Subject: 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.

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.
