Can the wolf event be recognized in North China?

, : Can the wolf event be recognized in North China?. Annales Geologiques des Pays Helleniques, 39(A): 317-326

Can the Wolf Event be recognized in northern China? The answer is, in part, "yes". The Wolf Event, a turnover recognized in Europe and characterized by the wide dispersal of the genus Canis, is now placed prior to Olduvai subchron, at about two million years ago. The fossil record of China, especially that of the Yushe Basin, Shanxi Province, demonstrates significant turnover by this time. Canidae as a family appeared as an immigrant from North America near the beginning of the Pliocene Epoch, and the oldest Yushe Canis is about 3 Ma. While the appearance of Canis antedates the Wolf Event in Europe, it may be noted that the genus was not widespread in China until around 2 Ma. Clearly the late Pliocene was a significant time of faunal turnover in China, likely correlated with climatic change on a global scale, and therefore paralleling changes to the west in Europe. However, differences in faunal composition and precise timing of key appearances, make the term "Wolf Event" misleading for China. While the Wolf Event is not fully relevant fro China, faunal events in this part of Asia and Europe were likely linked by global climatic events, and future research can test the dynamics of this change.

A dimer of HCN, N-cyanomethanimine 6, was prepared by flash pyrolysis (gas phase, 10-2 mbar) from 3-azido-1,2,4-triazole 1a and detected by ultraviolet photoelectron spectroscopy (Hel). Its ionization potentials were measured and the ionic states...
