A Cell Press partner journal
See the unseen. Change the unchanged.
The Innovation í¬ published by Cell Press in partnership with members of the Youth
Innovation Promotion Association (YIPA),a part of the Chinese Academy of
Sciencesí¬is a new broad-scope, open access journal publishing basic and applied
research that has impact for the benefit of society.
On the cover: About 100,000 years ago, Diverse Homo species coexisted with our own species Homo sapiens. The Harbin cranium, or the Dragon Man, is one of the best preserved Middle Pleistocene human fossils. The cranium has a large cranial capacity falling in the range of modern humans, but is combined with a mosaic of primitive and derived characters. Phylogenetic analyses suggest that the diversification of the Homo genus had a much more distant past than previously presumed. The Harbin cranium and some other Middle Pleistocene human fossils from China represent the third human lineage that is the sister group of H. sapiens and has closer relationships with H. sapiens than Neanderthals with H. sapiens. Multiple Homo lineages in Africa, Asia and Europe probably had a strong capability for long-distance dispersal, but remained in relatively small and isolated populations. Diverse palaeoenvironments in Asia may have produced a varied biogeographic sink for human evolution.

Migration routes of the Asian elephants and the related climate and vegetation changes

The Asian elephant (Elephas maximus), an endangered species on the International Union for Conservation of Nature Red List, is the largest terrestrial animal living in Asia. They require a relatively large space to live in. In China, the wild Asian elephants exist only in XiShuangBanNa, Puí»Er, and LinCang of southern Yunnan Province, with 95% of the wild population residing in the XiShuangBanNa National Nature Reserve. In recent years, territorial conflicts have arisen between humans and elephants around the national nature reserve.
