PUBLICATIONS OF THE DFG-NSFC SINO-GERMAN BUENDELPROJECT (2001-2004)

This list contains published literature which directly relates to the Sino-German Buendel-Project “From `Snowball Earth´ to the Cambrian Bioradiation – A multidisciplinary analysis of the Yangtze Platform, China” supported by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) and the National Science Foundation of China (NSFC) between August 2001 and October 2004. All publications must either have appeared in print or be accepted for print (in press). Previous work, even if related to the general theme of the “Buendel Project” or work in “planning stage” is not considered.

Authors in bold directly are team members of the project of a Project Principal Investigator (P.I.). Underlined authors are also members of the binational “Buendel Project” but did not belong to the same project. Therefore, double listings may occur. However, the interdisciplinary links between the individual projects become thus more apparent.
