A number of sites in various parts of China, especially in South China, have yielded stone tool assemblages that exhibit Upper Paleolithic characteristics but date significantly after the beginning of the Holocene. Such remains show that the transition to settled, food-producing lifeways did not occur at the same rate in all areas. Cave-dwelling hunter-fisher-gatherer populations continued to exist simultaneously with early agriculturalists; these hunter-fisher-gatherer populations used fewer types of stone tools than their predecessors, but made more extensive use of bone and antler in their toolkits. The continued existence of these populations reflects environmental diversity and the specialization of adaptive strategies.
