The Chinese Academy of Sciences will host its 16th Public Science Day online from May 23 to 24. The event will include a series of online activities such as a virtual tour of the CAS, open science courses and audio-visual exhibitions. Many research institutes under the CAS will set up online live broadcast rooms, allowing the public to "visit" observatory stations, botanical gardens, field stations, key laboratories and major science and technology infrastructures online.
Chinese researchers from the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences reported on Friday that an analysis of sequenced ancient genomes revealed a major episode of admixture of ancient humans in East Asia, suggesting that population movement played a profound role in the early genetic history of East Asians.
Chinese researchers have discovered five new animal species in southwest China's Yunnan Province. The five species of the genus Leptobrachella, like little brown frogs, were found by the researchers from the Kunming Institute of Zoology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in the city of Wenshan and Dehong Dai Autonomous Prefecture in Yunnan.
Chinese researchers from the Institute of Geochemistry of the Chinese Academy of Sciences have disclosed that precipitation was more important for soil moisture changes in the karst areas of China than temperature. The researchers suggested that the soil drying trend and climate changes should be fully evaluated during ecological restoration of karst areas.
This fall marks 11 years that I have been living in China and working at the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). I have always loved China, being half Chinese and growing up fascinated with the culture of my mother and grandparents.
