that is much smaller than that for Siberia. All the mean positions for Late Permian and younger times are based on multiple results, whereas for older times only single pole positions are available. The APWP lies in the southern hemisphere in pre-Permian times but is not as long as that for Siberia. Apparent polar wander during the Paleozoic appears to have been quite large.

The data for South China and Tarim are summarized in Tables 6.9 and 6.10 and the corresponding APWPs are illustrated in Fig. 6.18. In the case of South China data have been included from Mongolia for post-Early Jurassic times. The APWP lies in the southern hemisphere during the early Paleozoic. The data set for South China is slightly larger than that for North China with 85 studies
