Sichuan Basin evergreen broadleaf forests

WWF Abstract

The borders of Tibet lie to the west and north; the Yunnan Plateau to the south. To the east lie hundreds of miles of hills cut by the Yangzi (Changjian) River. According to a Chinese saying, "the road to Sichuan is harder than the road to heaven." This observation may stem from the fact that the northern part of Sichuan is ringed by rugged mountains. In contrast, the Sichuan Basin is a fertile expanse of low hills and plains. It once supported extensive subtropical evergreen broadleaf forests, but 5,000 years of agriculture have taken their toll on the natural environment.
