About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Chinese

The content of this book includes not only the 16 reconstructions in the first picture book, but also adds 30 kinds of Miocene bird fossil reconstructions, which have been published and studied in China. Roughly includes birds' fossils found in China in all geological periods. To allow readers to have a more systematic understanding of Chinese bird fossils, this bood is classified according to bird systems, from old to new period: Archaeornithes, Enantiornithas, Ornithurae. I need to explain that the Miocene bird fossils found mostly are only partial, incomplete skeletons. They are the early representatives of present birds, excluding some exceptions. Although the skeleton is incomplete, we can reconstruct its skeleton according to similar present species because Cenozoic bird's skeleton fossil is especially closer to present-day birds than those of late period birds.
