South China-Vietnam subtropical evergreen forests

WWF Abstract

The South China-Vietnam Subtropical Evergreen Forests ecoregion forms a transitional zone between the tropical forests of Vietnam to the south and the subtropical and mixed forests of southern China. The landscape in this area is quite dramatic. In the western portions are forested mountains and abundant rivers and streams. The rivers and streams host gallery forests that make their way to the South China Sea at the region’s eastern edge. Throughout this ecoregion, large hornbills peer out from their nest cavities high up in tall trees. Chinese pangolins, which resemble scaly anteaters, seek termites and ants along the ground and in the forest canopy.
