Scientists Restore Black Soil in NE China

The Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) on Thursday released the phased results of its efforts to protect the country's black soil, a nutrient-rich soil that is essential for food security. According to a CAS report, seven large demonstration areas had been established in China's northeastern provinces by the end of last year, covering some 5 million hectares.

  • Advanced Technology Preserves Black Soil

    The Chinese Academy of Sciences uses advanced technologies, from remote-sensing to big data, to effectively use and protect black soil resources — highly fertile soil located in northeastern China that serves as the bedrock of national food security. 

  • Earliest Gibbon Fossil Discovered in SW China's Yunnan, Fills Evolutionary Gap

    A small ape fossil discovered in Yuanmou, Southwest China's Yunnan Province has been proved to be the earliest gibbon fossil ever found. The discovery pushes the gibbon fossil record back 7 million to 8 million years and helps Chinese and U.S. scientists fill a long-elusive evolutionary gap in the history of small apes in East Asia.

  • Fish Fossils Rewrite Evolutionary History

    Chinese paleologists have discovered two fossil repositories in southwestern Chongqing municipality and Guizhou province whose strata date back to the Silurian Period that began around 440 million years ago. The two sites have yielded crucial discoveries that could rewrite the evolutionary story of how humans evolved from fish.
