Review

Invaluable... "Fossil Mammals of Asia" has done what no project had previously accomplished and will be an indispensable tool for completing the process of establishing a continent-wide biochronology.--John D. Orcutt,"Quarterly Review of Biology" (01/01/0001)

The book's editors and contributors are to be congratulated. We must be grateful that this volume has come into being. It is a book into which specialists as well as other interested readers will have to delve again, and again, and again.--Ephraim Nissan"Priscum" (01/01/0001)
