This book is an achievement of scientific research on the stratigraphy, paleontology and paleogeography in the eastern part of the northern China. The book deals with the continental Upper Triassic strata of nine sectors in this area, that have been discovered over the last decade and more and reported here with an analysis of their characteristics and the proposal of some new ideas. It describes many fossil groups, such as plants ( 188 species of 54 genera ), spore and pollen ( 40 species of 29 genera), bivalves ( 26 species of 5 genera ), conchostracans ( 7 species of 2 genera ), and insects ( 7 species of 6 genera ), and makes a number of new taxonomic proposals.
Based on the systematic study of the fossils, the characteristics and their geologic ages of fossil assemblages are given for different sectors. The authors further discuss the Late Triassic floristic paleogeography, the paleoclimatic zonation, the pattern of tectono-sedimentary paleogeography, the stratigraphic division and the time limit and character of the Indosinian Movement in this area. Many new ideas are offered. There are 66 fossil plates in this book.
