N2 - The fluvio-lacustrine sequences in the Nihewan Basin of North China are rich sources of mammalian faunas and Paleolithic sites, thus providing unique insights into our understanding of land mammal biochronology and early human settlements in East Asia. Among the Nihewan Fauna (sensu lato), the Danangou (DNG) and Dongyaozitou (DZ) faunas are two of the important Pleistocene and Pliocene mammalian faunas in the Nihewan Basin. Except for a biostratigraphy, precise age control on the DNG and DZ faunas remains unavailable. Here we report high-resolution magnetostratigraphy results that stringently constrain their ages.
