Palaeontology and Historical Geology
Proceedings of the 30th International Geological Congress, Volume 12
This book is a collection of papers presented in the symposia, held in Beijing, on palaeontology and historical geology. The papers deal with different topics, providing information on Palaeobiogeography and Palaeoecology of Asian countries, their faunal content, and fossil preservation.
