About this book

Language: Chinese

This volume includes an introduction to primitive mammals and mammalian systems in two parts. The introductory part includes the basic framework that defines a mammal, the general morphology, phylogeny and classification, geographical distribution and to the history of the environment, plus mammal chronology. In particular, this volume highlights morphological features and gives an introduction to middle ear bone morphology, as well as the use of CT scans to determine intracranial contents, nose, and inner ear structures. In addition to the basics of the mammal classification system, some new higher-order mammal taxa and related disputes topics are briefly described. In the "Chinese Ancient Mammal Research History" section, some of the major events, research results and research staff are documented. A total of 54 genera and 63 species of Mesozoic mammals are described. Each type species is accompanied by pictures, and summaries of disputed higher-order taxa is given.

Palaeovertebrata Sinica, Volume 3: Basal Synapsids and Mammals, Fascicle 2 (Serial no. 15): Primitive Mammals本 册内容包括了哺乳动物导论和原始哺乳动物系统记述两个部分。导论部分包括哺乳动物的定义、一般形态学特征、系统发育和分类的基本框架、地理地史分布与环 境、哺乳动物年代学等。在形态学特征中特别加入了对岩骨以及中耳形态的介绍,以及使用CT扫描研究颅内、鼻腔、内耳结构等内容。除了基本的哺乳动物分类体 系,对哺乳动物一些新的高阶分类单元及其有关的争议内容也做了简要说明。在"中国古哺乳动物研究历史"一节中,记录了一些主要的事件、研究成果和相关的研 究人员。系统记述部分包括了截至2014年10月在中国境内已发表的、以中生代哺乳动物为主的54属63种,分属于后兽亚纲、真兽亚纲和9个已绝灭的哺乳 动物目(摩根齿兽目、翔兽目、蜀兽目、柱齿兽目、真三尖齿兽目、贼兽目、多瘤齿兽目、"对齿兽目"、"真古兽目")。每个模式种均附有图片,对一些存有争 议的高阶分类单元进行了概要评述。
