Ben Creisler

A new online paper:

J. J. Liston & Hai-Lu You (2015)
Chinese fossil protection law and the illegal export of vertebrate
fossils from China.
Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology (advance online publication)

The relevant legislation regarding fossil protection in the People's
Republic of China is reviewed, with particular emphasis on the aspects
of illegal excavation and export of vertebrate fossils contained
within the 1982 Cultural Relics Protection Law and in the current
legislation as of 2010–2013. Guidelines for how to follow procedures
to stay within the law are given for the assistance of international
researchers wishing to work on Chinese specimens with a collaborating
Chinese institution.
