Thousands of newly discovered fossils of showing stunning detail of sea organisms have been unearthed in China.

中国发掘了数千块海洋生物的新化石,显示了海洋生物惊人的细节。

They represent a range of species that lived as far back as 518 million years ago, during a time where there was a surge in lifeforms on Earth.

它们代表了生活在5.18亿年前的一系列物种,当时地球上的生命形式激增。

These new finds could reveal new details early life during that period which is known as the Cambrian Explosion, say scientists.

科学家们表示,这些新发现可能揭示了寒武纪大爆发时期早期生命的新细节。

Amongst the fossils, primitive forms of jellyfish, sponges, anemones, worms, algae, tiny invertebrates called kinorhynchs or mud dragons and arthropods were found.

在这些化石中,发现了水母、海绵、海葵、蠕虫、藻类、被称为泥龙的小型无脊椎动物和节肢动物的原始形态。

Scientists believe the rocks show what was in a mudslide that took place more than 500 million years ago when life on Earth experienced a massive burst of diversity in life forms known as the Cambrian explosion.

科学家们认为,这些岩石显示了发生在5亿多年前的一次泥石流,当时地球上的生命经历了被称为寒武纪大爆发的大规模生物多样性爆发。

The 4,351 separate fossils excavated so far include 101 species, with 53 of them previously unknown to scientists.

到目前为止,发掘的4351块化石包括101个物种,其中53种此前不为科学家所知。

More than 50 per cent of the discoveries are thought to be previously unknown species, the study published in the journal Science on Thursday.

周四发表在《科学》杂志上的一项研究称,超过50%的发现被认为是此前未知的物种。

Unlike other Cambrian fossil troves, the Qingjiang site is unique in that it not only includes well-preserved fossils but soft-bodied organisms as well, the study states.

研究表明,与其他寒武纪化石不同,清江遗址的独特之处在于,它不仅包括保存完好的化石,还包括软体生物。

According to the authors, the unique aspects of Qingjiang have the potential to greatly inform the understanding of early animal evolution.

作者认为,清江遗址的独特之处或能极大地促进人们对早期动物进化的理解。

Researchers say the discovery in China may rival previous fossil hauls, such as the Burgess Shale in the Canadian Rocky Mountains in 1909, Chengjiang in China and Emu Bay Shale in Australia.

研究人员表示,中国的这一发现可能与之前的化石发现相媲美,比如1909年加拿大落基山脉的伯吉斯页岩、中国的澄江页岩和澳大利亚的鸸鹋湾页岩。

The site in Burgess dates back to 508 million years ago and includes well-preserved fossils that show evidence of animal's skin, eyes, gut and brains.

伯吉斯的遗址可以追溯到5.08亿年前,包括保存完好的化石,这些化石显示了动物的皮肤、眼睛、内脏和大脑。

Scientists will be studying the recent Chinese discoveries to try and work out what they can reveal about early life on earth.

科学家们将研究中国最近的发现,试图找出能揭示地球早期生命的细节。

No need to go to |China to see fossils. Try The White House.

Evolutionary theory requires vast amounts of time and thus struggles to explain the Cambrian explosion because it happened way too fast.

进化需要漫长时间的,因此很难解释寒武纪大爆发,发生得太快了。
