Changjiang Plain evergreen forests

WWF Abstract

Meaning "Long River," the Changjiang -- known also as the Yangtze -- is the third longest river in the world. After flowing from high mountains and passing through deep gorges, it twists across more than 600 miles (1,000 kilometers) of wet, fertile plains. The evergreen forests of the Changjiang Plain have grown on well-drained areas and lowlands. The shallow lake basins are surrounded by extensive wetlands that provide winter habitat for migratory birds, as well as the Yangtze river dolphin and the Yangtze alligator.
