This volume includes contributions from the Fourth International Conference on the Cambrian System, held in Nanjing, China, in august 2005. The conference was combined with the Tenth Field Conference of the Cambrian Stage Subdivision Working Group. Eight Field excursions to Classical Cambrian localities in China and South Korea were organized as a part of the meeting, although only six trips were run. This book contains guides to the field areas visited as part of the conference. As originally planned. Four pre-conference trips involved excursions to eastern and northern Guizhou, western Hubei, western Zhejiang, and western Shandong, China; and four post-conference trips involved excursions to eastern Yunnan, northwestern Hunan, and southern Shaanxi, China, as well as the Teabaekshan Basin, South Korea. Guides for the planned trips to western Zhejiang, China, and the Taebaeksan Basin are included here although the trips did not actually take place…….
