About this book

Language: English

Heyuan Basin is one of ten basins in Guangdong Province, China, and occupies about 725 km2, consisting of the Upper Cretaceous and Paleogene deposits. The Heyuan Basin has produced not only Hyyuannia, the first derived oviraptorid dinosaur outside the Gobi region, but also more than ten thousand dinosaur eggs. Heyuan Basin has become one of the ideal localities for studying dinosaur eggs, oviraptorid dinosaurs and other Mesozoic reptiles. In order to foster better understanding of the dinosaur resources in Heyuan for paleontologists and geologists from home and abroad, this symposium was sponsored by the Heyuan Municipal People’s Government, and co-organized by the Center of Stratigraphy and Paleontology of the China Geological Survey and Guangdong Rising Assets Management Co., Ltd.

Twelve international experts from eight countries: Belgium, Canada, China, France, Germany, Japan, South Korea and USA were invited. Fourteen lectures given at the symposium are published in this book. This volume contains papers presented at the “2005 Heyuan International Dinosaur Symposium”, held on April 8th to 12th in Heyuan City of Gangdong Province, China.
